Hornady Cam Lock Bullet Puller Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I recently picked up a Hornady Cam Lock Bullet Puller to disassemble a bunch of 9mm rounds. I’m using the #9 collet.


I can get the correct tension on the collet to pull the bullet, but I can’t get the bullet to drop out of the collet afterwards.  I’ve had to reach in and pull the bullet out of the collet with a pair of needle nose pliers. Tried adjusting the tension a dozen different times but no luck. 


Any tips or suggestions on how to get it set up properly?


Thanks in advance!

The collet is too tight - even without any tension on it, the bullet won't drop free. 


Spread the collet out a bit and now it works better. Bullets drop free about 90% of the time now.
