North Texas, but hope to move to the Texas gulf coast soon.

I personally like the cup point design with a hard cast bullet. It allows for greater terminal impact force to the target, drives straighter through soft and hard matter, and limits penetration over the flat meplat design. Add a softer alloy to that and the cup point allows for expansion and greater retained weight, less nose shearing upon impact (than a soft alloy hollow point), etc. Any bullet can be hollow pointed with the right set up, so there is no need to buy a mold for the purpose.
All I can say is.....WOW! That is excellent workmanship!
