Personally, I basically execute a press check to cock the striker without ejecting the round. Haven't had any issues. The only part where the procedure gets slow and tedious is in practicing slidelock reloads, but there really is no way around it. I keep a mag full of snap caps and then work through them until the mag is empty. The dremel trick unfortunately wouldn't work there, because the claw would just double feed a round. Though, I guess you could do it with the spare mag empty...hmm...The only downside I can think of for that is that the slide stop would be slightly unrealistically harder to disengage because it's working against the follower too.
