I have about 8 projectiles sittin in ruined cases, and no bullet puller.... Is there another way to get em out without damaging the projie?
If your using the single stage or Turret.
*Remove die from press
*Place cartridge in ram
*Push up into full up stroke position
*Grasp projectile where it meets the brass throat with set of side cutter, or lineman pliers.
*Lower ram and brace the plier on top of press for support.
*Complete ram down stroke while maintaining pressure on bullet
Damage will be kept at a minimum. If you ever go with a Kinectic puller, make sure you put an Ear foamy in the hammer chamber. It'll will protect the bullet tip from deformation.
