Components of the system
There are 3 major components of the system: The die body, the tipping insert, and the caliber sleeve.
  • The die body is the same regardless of what you're pointing.
  • The tipping insert determines the tip angle, and is optimized for specific bullet geometries. The designs for the tipping inserts were engineered by Applied Ballistics (Bryan Litz) to maximize drag reduction for each class of bullet shape.

  • The caliber sleeve is simply a sleeve that guides and supports the bullet during the pointing process. Caliber sleeves work for any bullet in a given caliber.

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.
