The idea of pointing the tips of match bullets is to increase BC and uniformity. Different
bullets will benefit from this process more or less than others. The BC increase
has been measured between 2% and 8% for a variety of long range bullets. Pointing bullet tips
also increases uniformity as well (more or less depending on how uniform the bullets
are to begin with, out-of-the-box). Bullet pointing has been in common practice
for a number of years now with no identifiable downside. So what is the burden of this performance increase? Of course there's the initial
cost of the tool. After that, using the tool is fairly quick and easy, taking less
than 10 minutes to point a box of 100 bullets.
