Getting a NSA .22 to open up better ... a LOT better !

Gripping the sharpened Philips bit in a drill press chuck and setting the limit stop would seem more to enable a more repeatable hollow point wall thinning, than tapping the bit with a hammer.

Imagine the die or mold HP core pin having that shape already.  Calling Nick...

Ok thats awesome!!

Wonder how hard it would be to make some parts for a reloading press.  Be easy to pump out modified ammo.  Have a cup base to hold the slug, and a modified dye to be pushed into the slug.  With the dye you would be able to accurately control the depth of the splits,  instead if the " tap tap tap" method.

I do have a dye set that I use to modify .22lr shells and it works great.  Wonder if I can find a tip to use in that.
Hmmmmm
