Is their any pointed rifle tip we could fit in a 10mm cartridge?

With the casing being 0.988" and the cartridge overall length being 1.260" it only leaves 0.272" outside that can be tapered to a point.

The crimp needs to be on the actual 0.400" section then to a point regardless of bullet length or weight.

No Intercooler isn't Chopping Block, but Chopping Block is a member here on the forum...RaggedyMan.
However Intercooler has provided a bunch of stuff for the testing projects...

For personal protection? I honestly think that .40 S&W is excellent for that task so "weak" 10mm loads are fine. I believe that the cost in muzzle blast and recoil isn't worth the gain in terminal effect for human targets. It's a lot more useful for woods defense.
