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.

Wow, evidently you guys have way too much time on your hands if you sit around pulling the tips out of bullets with pliers. :eek: I see no good coming from that. ???

I'm going to be 60, I've earned the right to be grumpy! ;D Just ask my wife!

Actually I'm trying to beat out PJ for Curmudgeon of the Year! ;D

Curmudgeon? I'm in My 50s and have never heard that word! ??? I'll have to google it. Learn something new here everyday :)
