I had the Lil Gizzy and it was well made and did what it was supposed to. Unfortunately they wouldn't function in my semi auto with match chambers. Prob good in a bolt gun.

I have a silly question, but a question no less.....

I realize the op talked about ammo on hand but why ? There are a number of hollow points on the market in HV and LV and SSHP configuration why take on a PIA job just to make a few rounds. Go buy a box or three and shoot em.

I buy Eley SSHP by the brick and shoot them at tree rats and paper. They do a great job and I dont need to mess with them.

Just my wandering/wondering mind...….

I wouldn't trade my Waltz die for anything. Several years i have had it too. glad i spent the money. I have had tremendous luck with hollowpointing CCI Quiets and they smack squirrels with authority.

Really?
Do these hollowpoint CCI Quiets expand? Have you recovered any to see?
Years ago I altered some with a Paco Tool and shot them into a stack of wet phone books. None of them expanded, mushroomed, or fragmented.
I'd be interested in seeing some photos of your mushroomed Quiets, if that's the case. Of course, "smacked with authority" ain't so bad either, whether they expand or not.

I've never dug one outta a squirrel to see if it mushroomed. Living breathing flesh and bone is different than wet phone books. They do the job and that is all i care about. And they do it quietly.

Paco Tool

I have a Paco tool and did quite a bit of accuracy testing with my martini. I used CCI Standard velocity and sized them to .223 and .224. At 25 yards I couldn't notice a appreciable difference with a five shot group. I did like using the shallow dish resizing post, it made a wide flatish meplat that made a better hole in the paper. Almost like a semi wadcutter.

I don't hunt, but I imagine that flat meplat with dump a lot of energy into small edibles.

Imo 25yds is too close to be able to distinguish the diff, 50 is MUCH better and 100 is definitive.

If you need your rimfire ammo to blow up on impact, switch to 17HMR.

Reason - because it can be done.

I have been buying RWS ammo at a good deal and this is HP semiauto and HP SS ammo and it works for me. But I have a good amount of bulk ammo and I have a dad that likes to tinker. He's retired and wants to try and take bulk ammo and make it shoot better.

Is it cost or time effective? I doubt it but he wants to mess around with it and I figure why not.

Yep; absolutely!

I had a Paco tool for a while, and some ammo it improved, some not. I Finally sold it, deciding that I could/did find ammo that would do as well, without the bother.
I do have a little implement that I bought from a fellow on the forum...a mild steel chamber for .22 LR, which allowed a person to file maybe 2-3 gr. from the tip of the round, making a small flat nose that is said to be more "efficient" for taking small game. Seeing as how CCI does or once had a round with similar configuration, and probably works, without the additional time/effort. You have to decide.

But...if he is retired and likes to tinker, more power to him! Take him shooting! If he sees sine positive results from his efforts, he may do more for you.
