    They changed the materials. Mine is about 20 years old and has pulled hundreds (maybe even a thousand?) of rounds now without issue.

    Now they use cheap components that break, so they can sell you more STUFF.

    Yup, I have a new RCBS kinetic puller and the collars are already very worn from just a few times pulling, they will eventually be worthless.
    I use the end grain of a 4x4 to pound on and have now started to use my shell holders in the puller.

    Using wood will abuse them more then metal. Mine is 15-20 years old but don't they still have the same warranty?
