pull em. dont beat it do death like your nailing something in oak. just gentle taps on a hard surface. seating in 230 grain bullets using 200grain load depth can vastly increase pressure. best to pull em

Personally i use the Hornady collet puller. A little more money but it works well without damaging anything. Pull the heavy bullet reload with the correct one.

I keep an extra single stage press bolted to the bench to use for this and bullet sizing.

I ordered an RCBS collet puller. I looked at a few different types, but I went with this one cause it will do 50 cal (with the right collet), and I am reloading 500 S&W.

I would say buy a bullet puller. That is the safest and easiest way, those hammer type take a lot of hammering to get the bullett out. If you decide to get the kenitic typetry putting your bullets back in the press and if you crimped them, reseat them a little deeper to break the crimp and then use the puller or hammer type and the bullets will come out a lot easier.

Got my puller in this weekend. The RCBS puller worked very well. Only problem I had was the first time I tried, I got the case and gave it a very hard crimp. When I reset on the bullet, it came out very easy. Tried it on another round that was left over from a starting load, and it was fast and easy.
