I pulled the hard plastic tip out with pliers from an SST 225 gr and did the same with the FTX and swapped them. It fit perfectly, and now it's safe in a lever tube mag. Has anyone done this with the 185gr GMX or the interbond? Has anyone thought of this at all?. The topless FTX, can be used at the range for shooting paper. Just doing some experimentation and doing what I'm good at, that's figuring things out and annoying others.
