Anyone have any positive/negative reviews on a hammer style impact bullet puller that they have used? I know they are not big bucks but I don't want to buy something that will crack or break the first time I use it either. I have read mixed reviews online on different models but it wouldn't hurt to get your review as well. Thanks!

Went cheap, frankford, hey, it's blue :dunno:

You can find them under $11, only been used about 20 times without any problems.

I have the Cabelas one which is made by RCBS. Works fine, key is to have a solid surface to hit it against. I use a scrap peice of 4x4 on top of concrete. I collect a few dozen before I actually get around to pulling.

I've had the same one for over 45 years... you're not supposed to use them on every round you load. :whistling:

I have a couple that I have used for many years! Well worth the price and get the job done.

They have had quite a bit of use and only broke one from really hitting it too hard. The plastic nose broke, but was able to fix it with my plastic welder. You really don't have to strike them very hard to work, successive light taps work well.

my RCBS works great, they have replaced the nut for free twice with free shipping.

I just got one from Natchez by Smartreloader for $9.99. It seems to work fine. Used it twice so far.

I have a Midway USA brand that's close to 20 years old. I bought it because it was cheap. It's held up better then I thought it would.

I have a Dillon one, $20 or so. Works great.

Make sure you strike the hard surface at 90 degrees, that's important. Loose wrist so head can fly back on its own, that is what makes it work.

I went through 50 rounds (saved up over the years) in a fairly short time.

My RCBS broke in half a few weeks ago. I use a 6 x 6 piece of wood. It snapped beneath the head. I sent it back to RCBS and they promptly sent me a new one at no charge.

BTW: these are fine for a small amount of rounds but I'd recommend also getting a RCBS collet bullet puller. Also very inexpensive and a snap to pull a 100 rounds!

I have a RCBS, I have pulled hundreds of rounds with it. A friend of mine blew up his gun. He gave me half an ammo box of his reloads.
I dissembled them threw the powder away and made new rounds out of them.
I find hitting it on cement works much better than hitting it on wood. Also it is all about the wrist.

I would just get a hammer type bullet puller and if I did rifle? I would get one of these pullet pullers from Lee when ever it comes out.

I've had mine for 26 years. It works fine. I'm actually surprised at how long it has held together.

That trimmer is pretty slick. You could mount it on a progressive with a casefeeder and have a manual version of the Dillon.

Bullet puller is also very slick.

Yeah, but first you had to invent inertia for it to work:tongueout:

Don't screw with me, don't you know I'm sick and feeble? You have no compassion... no wonder you're on thin ice around here.

Anyone have Eric's number handy? :whistling:

+1 for the wrist!

I like my Quinetics puller. It has a universal collet. Works quite well on all the various calibers I've used it on. You also don't need to fully remove the cap to remove the round.

My Franfort Arsenal puller has performed well for 20 years; but it requires the selection of one of three collets based on the round being pulled. Not a big deal if you have a small selection of calibers.

Had mine about 10 years, works perfect, I just bang it on the basement wall next to my bench when needed.
