    For rifles, at least. I've been sorting out some components and found a bunch of 140gr Silvertips for my .270 in the back of a drawer. I've got loaded Silvertip ammo in .250 but looking at current listings through Midway all of the rifle stuff looks to be "combined technology" silvertips. Is the traditional silvertip rifle round now a thing of the past?

    This is something I am questioning also. And how about the handgun ammo with silver tip HP as in 32 auto? Thanks Kirk for bringing the subject up. Bruce

    old school silvertips are gone. If you like them keep an eye open, I bought some -06's off of here awhile back.

    Iran across some in -06 that I'd put in a Hornady box. Think they're 150's. Must have bought those a long time ago.
