I am intending to get the Hornady Collet Puller but it seems like they do not sell a collet for the .500SW cartridge.

Can the RCBS collets be used on a Hornady Collet Puller? Are they compatible with each other?

Thanks!

Forster collets (even when picked up on clearance) do not work with a hornady puller. Maybe with a lathe a forster collet could be turned down to fit inside of a hornady cam lock puller.

I do not have an RCBS collet to try.

It's uncommon for collet bullet pullers to work with handgun ammo, there's usually too little bullet exposed for the collet to get a grip on. I suspect that's why Hornady doesn't have a collet for that caliber.

I will have to check my puller, but to the best I can remember I dont think that the Hornady puller can handle a .50 diameter bullet.

I can't speak for the Hornady but I have the RCBS and it works great. I have pulled a hundred or so 10mm's with it and it works flawless. Have you thought about just going with the RCBS puller?

The Hornady one has a lever action for locking onto the bullet. That seem easier than the screwing action of the RCBS one but Hornday does not support 500SW, and so the original question.

The RCBS only takes about a quarter turn once it is set up. I pulled a the hundred bullets in less than 10 minutes. I can see your concern by the description but it is really quick and pretty effortless.

I have the Hornady bullet puller, Handle? it is referred to a cam operated, problem, I spent more time waiting for parts than than I spent using it. I quit using it and like a miracle it quit needing parts.

I acquired a RCBS puller that uses collets with a T handle screw, like magic, all of my bullet pulling problems went away.

The Hornady cam lock puller parts will not fit the RCBS type bullet puller.
