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.

You are the chopping block?  Haha,  small world. I think I've watched all those videos. Aren't you part of full 30.com too?
The 10mm Auto, created by Zeus, replaced Thor's hammer, perfected by Jeff Cooper, and endorsed by Larry Vickers AND the Nuge! It exudes awesome! :D

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.
