    New hornady a-tip bullets ?

    I just got an E mail from Midway that Hornady A Tip bullets are now available for backorder. This is the first I have heard of this bullet and they included a video describing the bullets. I tried searching this forum, but it did not show any posts. They are pretty pricey so I would like to hear some input to know if they warrant the high price? Also, the length seems to be longer than most because of the ogive shape. How does this affect the OAL to get the right case fill and fit mags, or even bolt actions? One more thing, the weights are different from the weights I use, so it will as usual start much more load testing. Maybe these are to compensate for the OAL length/ weight differences?

    They sure are proud of them. I will stick with Berger bullets for dang near half the price.
