Maybe some fear the end is coming and want to reset?

1/8 hardened steel drill bit in the cordless, drill the attachment points and than all it needs is a light tap. Perfect every time

Yup, I like the donut/washer style reducers and keep all the various sizes. They work well and most of the time it's hard to even see that they are there.

( Cordless ) Rotozip with a Dremel cutting disk -- they pair up with 1/8" collet and shaft.

Four zips, and the desired KO drops out, flawlessly.

I hate, hate, hate reducing washers... reducing bushings are fine.

I like to mark the KO with an (X).
Then lay it on a table and walk back 200 yards.
I then aim very carefully with my rifle and blow it out. Its not a clean way to do it, but it is fun as hell.
Oh...remove main first if there is one.

A non-stepped uni-bit works great as well, and placement isn't critical.
