Thread: best bullet puller or method?

  1. #1

    best bullet puller or method?

    I have an rcbs kinnetic bullet puller and I've learned to crack the bullet seal on RG mil surplus by using the seating die to press it a touch further in before I give them a thump which works nicely. Then like most I stick a sporting head on and happy days away I go.

    But doing this kind of pulling on loads of ammo is a killer, is there a better tool for the job than a kinnetic puller?

    I use the RCBS die mounted collet puller, I started using this because there were some rounds that my kinetic hammer struggled with, I wouldn't say that either method is quick. atb Tim

    I haven't tried the RCBS one but the Hornady cam-lock bullet puller works nicely.

    Hornady collet puller is the best one in my opinion

    Got them both, had to have an R.C.B.S. one, as Hornady strangely as producers of .17 cal bullets dont provide a .17 collet for theirs, both are good quality & the best way to dismantle ammunition.

    Very efficient puller.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    One collet type is probably as good as another. I have used an RCBS for a two+ decades with no problems.~Muir

    Couldn't find a .17 cal on Hornady's site or Midway's (from Hornady) when I looked, that's why I ordered the R.C.B.S one,

    hi not wishing to hi jack but are these caliber specific ie 3 different calibers =3 pullers or 1 for all and can they be fit a lee press

    You need the correct size collet to fit the die mounted puller, kinetic hammers usually come with a selection that will grip most calibres. as far as I know the thread on the RCBS Puller is interchangeable with the Lee. e.g. I have the RCBS puller mounted alongside the Lee die set and a Lyman powder dispenser in a Lyman turret press.atb Tim
