I haven't tried 3Rivers, but have used brass points for years and like
them much better than field points. They just look very cool. No problem
with bouncers, although I find the 125gr points too heavy for my 22lb
bow. I now use 63gr parallel or 80gr screw-in points.
Quicks sells a whole range of brass points
including 1/4" which are great on children's arrows. Download the second
half of the pdf catalog for the full range.

Yeah, with my style of shooting and the weights of bows that I shoot, I need arrow points that are 180 grains. A few years ago I happened upon a batch of 180 grain bullet points and used them on a couple of dozen arrows and I iked them. I didn't notice that I got better penetration with them, in fact these particular ones were slightly rounded at the tips so the almost acted like blunts. I shot thm the year I won East Kingdom Archery Champion and I remember that these arrows were blowing the heck out of the small targets made by Sir Kai (sorry about that Kai).
I know that the English shooters in the BLBS like the light brass bullet points very much, but they don't shoot by the rule of making your arrows balance 10% FOC. I must say that their arrow flights are not as true and smoothe as we scruffy American "colonists" that shoot heavier arrows.
I think that the brass tips are ideal for lighter weight target bows. They sure do look pretty.

They only come in 100 gr. which is a little light for my arrow.
