I smack it on a hardwood chopping block I keep by the woodstove. No give to it and works much better than hitting it on my wood work bench. My reloading bench will be waiting until fall for me as it doubles as a fishing rig tying bench this time of year. Tied Black Sea Bass rigs today, going to the Flemish Cap tomorrow(not quite that far)[/QUOTE]Anyone have suggestions for how to pull bullets easier than with a hammer type puller - i smack away with that thing in general and make no progress. Hard surfaces, wood, a hockey puck. Bullets take forever to remove - good workout though
I hear you there- just home from a 70 day trip that was a last minute- grab your bags, you're leaving tomorrow amI've got a pretty long list of projects I thought I would have completed by now. In mid-May I was sent to Germany on short notice (3 days, pack your chit and go) for 30 days due to current events. That was 49 days ago, here I remain...
I was working on reforming a bunch of 7mm RM brass into .350RM. I just finished annealing it and was about to start cutting to length. Had a bunch of 9mm and .223 to load for matches, but now that's not so urgent since my last match was early May and my next will be.... I also started load development for my Rem M7 in .260 that I had re-barreled. I also wanted to work up a load for my .270 as I've drawn for a guided mulie hunt in MT for Nov. I was hoping to get to it before the hot summer came, but now it can wait till early fall.
I suppose the good news is I'm not suffering from the component shortage..
What time’s lunch? I’ll bring a couple of side dishes and adult beverages…Tomorrow I need to cook a London Broil in the smoker and slice it up into lunch meat, then I can play in the reloading room.
You can always try a collet-type puller. Otherwise, try using a bullet seating die to push the stubborn bullet a little farther into the case, then use your inertia puller again. I've done that a few times with military surplus rounds and it worked pretty well.Anyone have suggestions for how to pull bullets easier than with a hammer type puller - i smack away with that thing in general and make no progress.

@ tightgroup tiger .32 S&W long. Another caliber I had no idea existed, lol. I saw a few of those at the range the other day among the piles of 9mm brass. Had to pick one up and examine it to see what it was. So many cartridges, so little time
