    I have heard some mention of this gizmo on this and a few other boards.

    It seems to cut off the tips of solid 22 ammo to make a large meplat for increased game hunting effectiveness.

    It cost $40, the price of a brick of reaallllly good hp ammo.

    And, then you have to use the thing on each bullet.

    What do you guys/gals think?
    Anyone with personal experience?

    Seems like a PITA to me......used to shoot Remingtom Vipers---pointed flat nose. Last flat was so up and down......never bought them again, sounded like some barely made it out the barrel/while some seemed to be double charged.....not nearly as good as a quailty HP though. JMHO

    Its easy to cut down .22 bullets. You don't need that gizmo, all you need is a sharp knife.
    A friend of mine at the range once told me that , as a kid he had a .22 short revolver. He couldn't find any .22 short rounds, so he cut down .22LR. He said it was REALLY powerful and very effective on small game.
    However , if you cut those bullets yourself , it won't be as precise as with that gizmo. I'd say buy one , and let the others know if its any good.

    hello.. i doubt if this ammo would cycle due to the flat point.

    Hi Forum!

    I´m an construction engineer from Germany as I pointed out some time ago...

    This Gizmo how you call it seems to me as an expensive joke!

    Try this instead:
    1. Get a cigar-cutter.
    2. Get a plastic tube in which you can insert the .22 cartridge, but not the rim (try a ball-pen-body)
    3. cut the tube to the length the cut round shall have

    Ready to begin now...

    4. insert round
    5. cut it of behind the tube with the cigar-cutter
    6. ready-steady-all-the same-length .22 Flat point rounds

    Works fine for me.
