    I'm not going down the Magazine or clip road, but calling bullets "Tips","Points" or "Heads" is a amusing. I suspect if a person thinks a cartridge is a bullet then the pointy end must be the tip.

    Don't forget bullet head. I think there's only bullet, projectile and perhaps slug..
    can't think of any more right now

    There was a guy a few days ago that posted a classified add on Facebook. He was selling Sierra and Hornady 60grain bullets at $1/piece. Then a few days later he posted a picture of reloaded cartridges, still calling them bullets. His price is still higher than balls on a giraffe for .223 amo.

    "I don't know what it's called. I just know the sound it makes when it takes a man's life."

    That quote may be a bit off, but name that movie!

    The "tip" game always leads to more.
