Frankford Arsenal, RCBS, I think Hornady makes one... they all seem to work OK. Search over on Midway for reviews.

I have had some luck with the hammer ones. I have heard that the ones that clamp to the bullet in the press will work unless you push the bullet too far into the case.

They are all basically the Quinetics model. http://quinetics.com/

I have the Midway one which uses three collets; and recently got the Hornady one which uses a single universal collet.

The Midway one held up for 20 years until I had to pull some really well crimped .223 rounds. The screw cap broke. The Hornady one looks the same except it's clear instead of blue (plus uses a single collet). If it lasts half as long as the Midway one (which I fixed with JB Weld and wire today), it's still a bargain.

When I'm more interested in saving the projectile (vs the powder), I'll put one of those soft ear protector inserts in the bottom to cushion the projectile.

i use the hammer ones 90% of the time. had an rcbs for 25 years and 7 years ago it broke. so i got the frankford arsenal and it works just as good. i also got a rcbs that works with/in a single stage press. use it for rifle and the hammer for pistol. they both work well.

Thanks as usual IGF. I ordered that Hornady one from Midway.

A couple of years ago someone gave me 2000 of his reloads after he blew up his gun. I pulled them all with a kinetic hammer.
The main trick is to hit something hard like metal and not tables.

Someone pointed out to me you can use the shell holder with the kinetic pullers. Tried it on mine, works great.

Hmm, I didn't know that... Interesting.

JB Weld...lol. If I could tell you how many people I've watched screw up something that they thought that would be the answer to.. Sounds like it would probably actually work in this situation though..

That's my choice. Smack it on concrete three times and the bullet pops out and bounces into the foam in the front.

Personally, I like the press mounted Hornady with the lever lock.
Yesterday, I pulled apart almost 1000 rnds of surplus Tokarev. Averaged over 200/hr.
No mess! It doesn't get much easier than this.

Mine broke on concrete. Of course that was after 20 years of using it. I found that a piece of PT 6x6 works great. I have it sitting on the floor, attached to one of the legs of the bench. Whack the hammer on the end grain. Still releases the round; but is supposed to save the hammer.

JB Weld is one of the quickest ways to screw things up. I figured I had nothing to lose with it at this point. I didn't think the JB Weld would be enough, so I put some wire bands around it as well (hose clamp might be better). OTOH, I can order a replacment cap from Quinetecs for less than the price of a good hose clamp.

I just hate throwing stuff out that looks like it can be fixed.

I've always whacked mine on a turned over Lyman ingot mould, works great. Oh... I smack my bullet puller on the same mould.
