Meplated .22 LR


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have had really great results using a Hanned tool to put a meplat on the nose of inexpensive .22 LR ammo. Increases power and accuracy....anyone had similar results?

Hello, mtmrolla. Back when I did alot of squirrel hunting, I had read where there were .22 L.R. std. velocity hollow points avaolable at one time. I liked the accuracy of CCi Green Tag. Chucked up in bench lathe collet & ran a 1/16" drill into nose. I experimented alot with these & finally ended up filling cavity with stiff grease & using hard smooth tool, "spun" metal over nose nearly covering hole. I also drilled for press fit for #4 lead shot & used this & grease in cavity..in either case, expansion very positive..bullet opened up perfect mushroom like B.G. bullet. Big loud PLOP when they hit!

I seem to recall an old factory load called the 'Dynapoint' which I believed served the same purpose.

I just bought one from a guy who didn't want it anymore. I'm curious as to what bullets you are using. I'm going to try it out with some Federal ammo that I have laying around and will let you know how I make out.

Some 9-8yrs ago there was a guy named Paco at Rimfirecentral forums that developed a tool that puts a flat nose on .22 rimfire rounds. I've done a few round like this with my own tools in the garage and also drilling a truncated hollow tip. I did this to a Velocitor and commenced shooting a starling in the backyard tree. Wow. Three pieces came down. Amazing results.

Just took some of my Federal and CCI Stingers and filed them down with my Hann tool. I hope to get out tomorrow morning and see how they do with my T/C G2 22LR 12" Match pistol bbl.

Mtmrollar, well I went to the range today and fired my Stinger and Federal rounds that I filed down. In my Contender G2 pistol I was able to tell from the report the bullets were going faster. (They should be being they are lighter). But I could tell they hit with more authority from the noise I heard at 25yds when they hit that backstop.

Accuracy seemed to be slightly better. Overall I am quite please with the results and can't wait to try them out on a few squirrels this year.

Just received the latest Sportsman Guide catalog and they are advertising a DIY Extreme Hollow Point maker kit for the 22 for $25. In case someone is interested.

Or you can just buy CCI SGB ammo, if they still make it. Factory meplated (is that a word?) bullets and I have always had outstanding accuracy with them although they tend to tear up game pretty badly if you get anything other than a head hit. For quiet 50 yards or less use the RWS Subsonic HP are murder on squirrels and rabbits without excessive meat destruction on body hits.

Check with Midway, they have it in stock. Any shop that has a good selection of .22 LR ammo should have it. A quick Google search turned up Natchez, Cheaper than Dirt, and Champion Shooters as having it stocked, may not be in stock, but they listed it. And that was on just the first page that Google turned up.

Neil Waltz madea die at one time to flatten or HP -22LR bullets.

I kinda like it on some ammo. Besides flattening the bullet, it also expands it about 1 or 1.5 thousands. I have a gun that seems to like that.

Dont 'bump' em too hard.

For me the Federals work really well when Hannedized.
