There are two different purposes for these punch inserts:
    Punch Purposes
  • Making a flat tip or hollow point in a lead projectile in PF-1-HP or PF-1-HB dies, or lead tips in PF-1-HL dies.
  • Preparing a jacketed or lead bullet to accept a metal tip in the PF-1-HT dies.
Ejection punch rod For use with the lead bullets that do NOT use a metal tip, please IGNORE the below information regarding metal tip inserts. The punches work the same way but there is only ONE punch needed if you are not using a PF-1-HT die.

For PF-1-HT metal tip point form dies, two different punches are used in sequence. There is a cavity forming punch, with a "probe" tip, just as there is with the lead HP bullet without a tip. And there is a punch with a cavity in the tip, which is used to eject the bullet after the tip has been swaged into it. The cavity matches the kind of tip being inserted:
    Metal Tip Insert Types
  • ULD-TIP (7mm to 510 rifle bullets with ultra low drag, long OAL design)
  • PIN POINT (high BC shorter length 9mm to 510 bullets)
Dimensions for hollow point that match the tip of the ejection pin insert
Synchronized length and tip dimensions for lead bullets and for the 1st punch in a metal tip 2-punch set

For the ULD tips (TIP-30 or TIP-50), select the ULD-TIP punch or punch inserts. For the PIN POINT tips (TIP-45)select the PIN POINT punch or punch inserts. The punches are specific to a kind of tip, and cannot be used with the other kind.

Other, special designs of punches may also be made with inserts, so the option for "other" is given, and the "note" blank can be used to specify the details.

For cavity forming punches, the length is important and needs to be specified. This number is written on the original punch, along with the diameter. The length is matched to the a particular die cavity depth, to allow the punch to project exactly the right distance into the die cavity. Be sure to provide the sync length numbers written on your existing punch or die, to assure that what you get will work with your specific die.

These punches are designed and priced for standard production shapes which are not "custom" built with extensive one-off machine setup, engineering work, and other non-standard time-consuming options. We have a listing for custom punches including the custom inserts if such inserts are practical and are designed for field replacememnt. Some complex designs are primarily the cost of the custom machined insert. In those, the main cost of the punch is not the actual punch body, but the special machine work, fitting and finishing that allows such a punch to be produced.

A simple, straight rod style of punch made to standard specs can be produced in far less time. Conversely, the special custom insert cannot. If you use the "note" to try to modify the order to make it for a custom design, the price would not be accurate or possible in most cases. We can't spend four or five hours with one-off machine set-ups, engineering drawings, and hand finishing a single item for the same price as taking a standard part, made in quantity for stock, off the shelf! Standard dimensioned parts have the engineering drawings, shop notes, any special jigs and tooling needed including reamers and laps, built and tested long ago. Custom dimensioned parts require starting anew with the process. This is why two similar looking parts may involve a large difference in actual cost of production.
