collet bullet puller.
Anyone have an opinion on it? Use it? Tips on using it?
I never used one like that.
I bought one like it a few months ago to pull bullets out of some 223 ammo and it worked great. It was easy to set up and was way faster than one of the hammer type pullers.
That's what I figured when I seen it. Now I just have to buy all the different collets. This collet within the tool is just to pull 308/7.62 stuff.
I have used one once at a friends house, I typically use the hammer style. Hornady makes a cam action puller that is really nice also
If it pulls bullets at all, then it works better than my kinetic puller.
I have the RCBS puller as pictured; its a good puller but the Hornady is better. Too late for me to switch as I've already invested in all the collets. That said it works well for me just a bit slower than the Hornady. Only thing to watch out for is over tightening and marring the bullet when pulling.
What he said. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
While cleaning up the bench I recently found a new in package Hornady one I bought five or so years ago. like Christmas in march.
I can't afford anything in a green or blue box. I have bought some surplus pulled bullets though. Most were fine but some were too scarred up to use. I think you'll like it when you get used to it
This one was won with a bid. Otherwise I can't either lol
I have the Hornady, comes in very handy for disassembling old milsurp ammo.
I find that a sharp jerk on the press handle works better for me to pop old bullets loose, than being gentle. Some have been in for 75 years, with a crimp.
I have the Forster Universal with all the collets I need and like it.
