Nathan, have you or anyone else tried these as a replacement for A-Max's?

Not yet Mark.

Of meplats they say this:

"4. Meplat

- Designed to provide a consistent diameter finish with a moderately small open tip diameter, this should minimise the requirement for tipping/pointing the meplat.

- Does provide a portion of the overall projectile drag. Most designs have an optimum meplat diameter of 15% of their projectile calibre at supersonic flight. A meplat diameter of 20% provides the same drag as a meplat diameter of 10%. An absolute pointed cone provides the most efficient meplat but has yet to be achieved with an open tip match (OTM) projectile design!"

In light of this, I hope they have opted for a full 20% for the sake of hunters and not just target shooters.

Good luck to them, I hope they succeed.
