New handle design for RCBS collet bullet puller


Recommended Posts

I`m thinkin that will just allow people to apply more torque than needed for such a small task. It dosent take much pressure & torque to pull a bullet.

If anything, your actually adding more stress to the tool itself.

 

I see 2 things happening with this...

 

1) bend and ruin the handle faster

 

2) ruin more bullets by applying more torque than is really needed to grip the bullet.

 

I dunno, i dont have any problem at all using my RCBS collet bullet puller.

Iv found that I have problems with oversized lead bullets fairly often. I use the .355 collet even when pulling my .357 bullets because I’m too cheap to buy another collet and the .355 works well enough for me. I need to really torque the puller down in order to get the bullet out with these oversized bullets. With the lead bullets Iv found they’re usually not salvageable anyways, so I dont personally worry about it usually. I do agree that it will likely introduce too much force into the system and the user would need to be conscious of that.

LOL... yup i`ve been there many a time. And thats why i said what i said, i found it was stressing the collet and the threads pretty harshly with heavy torque.

I did ruin one of my .355 collets... it got sprung pretty bad. Eventually i did buy the proper collets though.
