First of all, thanks to all who post. I've gotten a great deal of info on this forum. I started reloading for a 300 wsm 2 yrs ago and have found that some equipment just isn't made for those short fat cases. I'ts getting better now though. I did just discover today that the RCBS bullet puller (hammer) will work for the 300 wsm and any other cartridge. Just put the case in the shell holder (either for the press or for the lee case trimmer), turn it upside down, and put it in the puller. Works great and no more headaches for me. Maybe this has been said before but i just discovered it today. So if i'm just dense and people have been doing it forever, jokes on me!! Hope this helps.
