    Came across this on the web and was wondering if anyone here had ever used one? Does it mar the bullet?

    A channellock pulls my bullets. Damage on the front of a FMJBT bullet has little effect on accuracy.

    Great idea, a bit spendy compared to inertia pullers.

    I have the standard rifle and pistol grippers. The rifle tool works best on "straight side" bullets such as a .30 cal. 180 sprn. Some shorter bullets with a distinct taper are a test of patience. Pistol bullets can be a hassle also. A heavy crimp makes it harder. A grip like Hercules may help.

    Ditto. I have found they work pretty well, although I haven't had to pull lots of bullets with them. Certainly less noisy than an inertial puller. :thumbup:

    I have one. Don't waste your money. Get a collet style puller.

    Looks promising. Where do I look or buy one? Other than Amazon, they don't need people like me.

    I have one. It works hit and miss - sometimes the bullet gets pulled. But more often it slips off of the bullet, and I have to use a pliers or something like that to get the bullet out.

    That's my experience...

    Not to forget, that after the the first slip, it starts to damage the bullet. I also found it quite painful and couldn't figure out why they didn't ensure the grips were coated or encased in rubber or some other protective material. For the price, it should come coated/protected.

    Lastly, don't even think about trying it on Lead/cast bullets. It usually deforms them after the first try (if you are successful in getting the bullet removed in 1 try).

    When I only have one to pull, I revert to my inertia puller (BTW, cheaper than the OP product), more than 2, I use the collet puller.

    Caveat Emptor.

    It looks like a knock-off of these similar pullers I keep in a bottom drawer of loading bench. The larger one in middle with padded handles I've had so long I can't remember who made it or where I got it, over 40 years ago..ATTACH=full]968592[/ATTACH]

    This is accurate. I have the universal pistol puller and it does not work at all for lead bullets. For pistol bullets once it slips off a jacketed round you need to clean off the copper from the puller jaws or it will continue to slip off the projectile.

    I used mine to pull 45acp since I didnt trust a collet in 45 not to break since the collet would be paper thin compared to say a 9mm collet. While pullling 45's I couldnt get enough grip on the tool so I would use a vise grip to get the required clamping force.

    For 9mm jacketed bullets I much prefer the hornady cam lock puller.

    This reminds of the Davidson bullet pullers. I talked to Mr. Davidson (don't remember his first name - John?) about 35 years ago, and he told me they were designed for loaded rounds with light neck tension.
