Stuck Moen 1222 Posi-Temp Cartridge

Been at this for a while tying to pull the 1222-b cartridge out of our Moen shower control handle

Tried the little white tool Moen provides in the pack to loosen it, but it only moves a little.
Tried pulling it with channel locks, not happening
Tried heating it with a hair dryer for 10-15 minutes, no luck.

Moen suggested the "Moen Cartridge Removal Tool", but have seen and read that this can sometime break the case and only pulls out the center part.

Any ideas or other ideas to get this cartridge out?

The below tool, ONA Puller, has good reviews.
