What Is a Ballistic Tip bullet?

Answer

A Ballistic Tip bullet is hollow-point bullet, engineered by ammunition manufacturer Nosler Inc., in which the front cavity is filled with a hard plastic polymer. The term is trademarked by that company, so its bullets are the only ones that can be called Ballistic Tip bullets.

The plastic polymer tip of the Ballistic Tip bullet acts as a plug in the traditional hollow-point bullet casing, creating an aerodynamic bullet shape that expands uniformly on impact. This type of bullet is typically used in hunting rifles for taking down thin-skinned, domestic game. The tip is color-coded by caliber, and the company makes the bullet in various models with additional features, such as the Ballistic Tip Varmint, Ballistic Tip Lead Free and Ballistic Tip Muzzle Loader.

H335 is a tad slow for such a light bullet. You will get better performance from 748, but the efficiency still isn't tremendous. It really does best with bullets in the 165-180 grain
