Thread: not so "smart reloader"!

    not so "smart reloader"!

  2. #2
    After 3 inertia hammers, breaking one, two blocks of wood and a table top I gave up and purchased a collet puller.

    I'm on my third one too. They don't seem fit for purpose.
    I am using a block of lead to strike on and this seems to help.

    As one of natures 'goofers' I've used mine on a 'more than occassional' basis since I got one. No idea when that was, but probably 10 years plus. Its green plastic - so thinking RCBS?

    All that said, there is something rather counter intuitive about belting a live round quite hard and repeatedly. The collet type puller has great appeal!

    same as my hammer lasted for less than 20 bullets.waste of money.i think they work better on bigger calibres with heavy bullets not so good on a 20 cal or 17 rem

    I have the rcbs one, been ok so far, touching wood as we speak..

    I have had it a couple of years and it works well on bigger cases, used it on 270 and 243
    this died when I tried to pull some .222 loads!

    irritating as it the least likely part to crack or smash

    My kinetic hammer is at least 23 years old and is RCBS. Three years ago a bought a pack of 4 aluminium case gripper inserts for £3 from the Dutchman at the phoenix meeting because I thought the original was about to break but is still going strong. Do you think I can get a refund on my £3.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Bewsher, you sure you've been using it the right way around?
