    I need to pull a few hundred rounds of 9mm, what is the best way to pull them so that all the components can be reused? I have a impact puller, but that ain't cutting it with this many rounds to do.

    Unless the bullet shank sticks out of the case enough to get a grip with a collet puller, a Hammer Bammer is the only way.

    Many 9mm bullets have the ogive curve or taper runing right up to the case mouth, and it's hard to get a hold of them with a collet puller.

    Might I ask why you have to pull a few hundred rounds of 9mm?

    Can you just shoot them and move on?

    Had a squib a few months back, sorted by headstamp and weighed. I really don't trust that method and would feel better pulling them. They are all loaded with the same powder might just sell them for component use only.

    Shoot them in slowfire only and carry a squib rod with you.

    Take it as a lesson to be sure each and every cartridge case contains one and only one powder charge before you seat a bullet.

    Just loaded 250 today doing just that. I did track the problem down to the way I had my powder measure installed on my turret press. I have since loaded hundred of reliable rounds.

    That is the easy answer and the best way to do so.

    sorted by headstamp and weighed.

    Not really an effective method as brass and bullets variations can conceal the lack of or overcharge of a few grains.

    I would do as Jim said. As long as you are sure there is no chance of a double and only a squib it's not that big of a deal shooting slow.
