I use a collet puller. Only for rifle bullets. I tried a hammer that a buddy had years ago. Nope. I don't load alot of pistol ammo anyway, just for revolvers now. I would rather buy auto pistol ammo.Guess I'm the only one that uses a collet type bullet puller.
All of my shooting buddys use the hammer deal like y'all.
It's the brass that can be used 10 (or however many) times that I am after mostly. Not the 12cent bullet, 3cent powder, and 4cent primerI don't pull bullets, I just trash them. For $.25 I am not going through it. I don't see the need happening enough either to worry about it. To each his own.
