Optional Note:
cavity forming punch insert cavity forming punch insert
This is a rod inserted into a punch head, and held with a set screw. It is used as a replacement part for point forming die ejection punches for the TIP seating/forming type of dies (two different kinds of punches).

Other specialty dies may use similar replacement punches, so an optional note section for "other" types is provided.

For the ULD-TIP and PIN POINT dies, there are four important pieces of information required.
  1. First is the type of punch, either the cavity-forming type with a projection on the tip, or the tip-ejecting type with a cavity machined in the end.
  2. Second is the diameter of the rod, which must fit the hole in the threaded end of the die. This number is marked on the die as a decimal such as .157 or .161 (or other size).
  3. Third, for the cavity forming punch, the first sync length of the punch relative to die cavity is important. This is actually two different numbers, one related to the overall length of the die and the other to the position of the punch within a particular die's cavity. Both are are written on the die and the punch head. For the numbers will be an integer (whole number) with a 3 digit decimal, in most cases.
  4. Fourth, the second sync length number which is similar to but shorter than the first one. Both are written on the original die body and on the head of the original punch. Again, this is a whole number followed by a 3 digit decimal.
Length is critical for the punch with the projection on the end, not quite so critical for the second or ejector as it does not have to project into the cavity a specific amount.

The ULD-TIP style works for the TIP-30 and TIP-50 style ULD inserts. The PIN POINT style works with the PIN POINT TIP-45 style 25-degree nose cone inserts, which are used for making shorter length high BC bullets from 9mm to .510 caliber, but are especially useful for the .45 caliber air gun, muzzle loader, and short cartridge rifle rounds like the .450 Bushmaster. The two kinds of tips use different punch shapes and dimensions, so be sure to select the correct one for your application.
