Ruby bolt tips are used to make Ruby bolts, which in turn can be enchanted to make Ruby bolts (e), which are effective ammunition against boss monsters. It can be immensely profitable to cut rubies into tips, but there is also a risk of losing money. Before buying rubies in bulk, test the profit of one of them.

With a chisel on hand, you can withdraw 27 rubies at a time. Each ruby becomes 12 tips when chiselled. It takes 70 seconds to cut an inventory of ruby bolt tips, so up to 1,400 rubies can be cut per hour.

The price paid for ruby bolt tips can vary by more than 20% on either side of the median price. To maximise your profit, buy one ruby bolt tip instantly, and sell yours for slightly below that price. It can take hours to sell all of your tips this way, but it can double your profit.

It may be worthwhile to buy rubies overnight on the Grand Exchange, or to buy them in bulk on the RuneScape Forums.

Due to constantly changing prices on the Grand Exchange, some information in this article may or may not be current.
It is strongly recommended to check the live prices on the Grand Exchange before making large investments in any method.
