You can use drop shot weights, threaded onto the hook point before you texpose the plastic.

Hadn't thought of that thanx, I'm thinking that would also work for an internal weighted tube

I don't know. You'd probably have to use the same kind of retainer as used for trailer hooks, since there isn't much plastic in a tube wall.
I use heavier drop shot weights (1/2 oz and up) for bubba shotting. I just open the line tie a little, and tie the weight onto the tag end with a clinch knot, since it's going into some really heavy cover.

I was thinking of somehow epoxying some sort of wire eyelet into a tungsten punch weight

I wouldn't use expensive tungsten punch weitht to experiment with.
If you're going to modify a bullet weight, why not experiment with an old lead bullet weight, which is cheaper and easier to modify. You can drill out the hole a little and push your wire all the way through, and bend tabs down onto each side of the nose like a cotter pin, and then glue the wire in place with super glue.
Parasite weights make a tungsten weight that might work for you:
