    Default Any of you guys used the Grip and Pull bullet puller?

    It's pretty slick looking. Here's a video on it,

    A lot of guys on my other forum like it.

    I'll be getting one.

    I've had a couple of them for a year or two. It's fast and easy. They haven't failed me yet, but I'm kinda hard on stuff so maybe their days are numbered......

    Yeah, a little spendy. But it sure beats whack, whack, whack,...whack, whack, whack.... whack, whack whack. Pulled 35 6.5 WSM bullets the other day... don't ask, long story.

    Oh, I figure there's probably a few ways to do it. What material? How to drill the holes? 2 piece gripper with bolt and nut pivot or 1 piece cut up the middle?

    For simplicity's sake, I immediately thought of the two piece option. A couple scraps of hardwood will do nicely. I figure I'll drill the holes with plain old HS twist bits... Looks to be about a 10 minute project.

    Hope that works. I'm a little skeptical that wood will do the job but maybe I'm wrong.

    I'm think plain ol pliers might work too but they might cause some scuffing on the bullet.

    I have never figured out how to get the typical hammer type bullet puller to work, I must be an idjit. I bought an RCBS bullet pulling collet for 30 cal and it works like a charm. Trouble is when I need to pull 338s or 44s.... I will probably try to make something out of wood as well... I wonder how a propane flaring tool would work?

    I've done it with pliers, but it is easy to crush the bullet and leave serrations on the jacket. Don't know how a thousandth of an inch or two of crush would affect the pressure or accuracy, so I generally throw them in the "undecided bin"....

    What part of that process is challenging you?

    Stick the bullet in, screw the retainer down snug the whack the hammer hard on something hard... A cinderblock works great. The only real downsides are the powder dumping out and it is a little noisy.

    Like I said, I'm obviously too dense....I didn't have instructions for it, but it seemed pretty self explanatory. I made sure to use the right collet piece for the caliber, then I whacked away at that thing on the concrete floor but didn't seem to budge the bullet. After a few whacks the whole cartridge would pop loose and I couldn't tighten the collar enough to make it hold the bullet without slipping off. I'll have to give it another go one of these nights, maybe I'm missing something..
