I would like to see the one your talkin about though. Mine is ok but you can't control the depth and it's kinda hard to hold the cartridge while drilling.
Never mind I found it. thanks

I had the same idea. I'd be interested to hear your report on terminal damage done. I'm sitting on a pile of Wolf M/T that shoots well but isn't the ideal game bullet. I did get some SK subsonic Hollow Points that seem to be more effective killers, tho....not quite as accurate as the M/T (in my rifle) and somewhat pricey.

I used sub sonics but the only come in deep hollow points and they were doing to much meat damage if I made a chest shot so I ended up just using CCI SGBs but they are high velocity and ended up scare the other squirrels in the tree so I'm hoping to be able to make some custom bullets for hunting that are subsonic and meat friendly.
Here are some hollow points with different depths they started out as Aquila super extra solids (the second one from left is a Remington subsonic that I made the hollow point bigger).
and this mushroom is the deepest one after I shot it in wet newspaper @ 30 yards,it made a 1'' hole in the paper
This is a EPS wadcutter with a mushroomed bullet next to it from paper test @ 30 yards. I think this one will make a good squirrel bullet but I will have to a month for season to come in to find out
I'm not saying that you can make a better bullet then what you can buy. but what you can do is make hollow points out of the ammo that you have on hand and make it fit your needs. You also get a round nose and flat nose die in the set.
