This is a -H type point forming die to produce a finished, weight-adjusted pellet in one stroke. It can form a hollow point, a flat tip, or a rounded tip as well as a flat, dish, cup, or hollow base (or a rebated boattail base) at the same time. It is the same design as the PF-1-HB but focused on air guns rather than general range of black powder slugs, pistol bullets, shotgun sluge, and other lead bullets with smooth ogives.

smooth ogive air gun projectiles This die produces a smooth, stepless ogive pellet or air gun slug, rather than one with a step or shoulder. The ejector punch is exactly synchronized in length so the end comes exactly to the end of the die cavity, and is fitted to withstand the high pressure so lead cannot leak past. The die has bleed holes, so that surplus lead will be extruded to adjust the weight. The base, nose, diameter, and weight are all formed in one stroke.

If a flat tip is desired, the ejection punch is simply made with a flat end, even with the end of the cavity. If a hollow point is desired, the same diameter punch can have a small extension on the tip, which forms a hollow cavity to the depth and diameter you prefer. A slight taper is desirable to help with easy removal and release. The hollow point should finish with a small radius to protect the edges, and should leave a reasonable wall thickness around the hollow point hole to prevent handling damage. The ejection punch (internal punch) has a replaceable insert, so you can switch from flat to hollow point with the use of a hex key wrench to exchange the inserts. Also, in some instances the tip can be formed as a radius or continuation of the ogive to a point, as desired. A cavity in the end of the ejection punch allows this, but it may create a small ring in the nose where the edge of the punch joins the end of the die cavity.

You can leave any of the dimensions blank if you don't have any specific requirement in mind, other than the diameter. That we need to know. The other dimensions can be left to diemaker's judgement if you wish. The most popular standard design will then be used.
