It made my life a lot easier.
String.... Try This...

Kinectic puller, make sure you put an Ear foamy in the hammer chamber. It will protect the bullet tip from deformation.

This is a real good thread. But some past experience I think is required.


As many of you have built and needed to "D-Mill" different # amounts of ammo, let me start off. If you reload, You will at one time or another have to D-Mill (ie: take apart) certain amounts of ammo.

I've been reloading for over 35 years and there have been many times I made some BAD ammo that required "D-Milling".

I have found that for most pistol calibers, the kinetic pullers work really well. This is the only way to go.

I have tried to D-Mill these pistol rounds with a Collete puller, with minimal results. Most pistol rounds have round nose or FMJ which are difficult to remove the projectile with a Collete puller. Now Most rifle rounds really work good in a Collete puller.

I have both, If you reload both rifle and Pistol cartridges, you need both.

i have to agree. having both is beneficial if you reload both pistol and rilfe loads.

i bought the Frankford Arsenal kinetic puller for $14 and it was a wise investment. works great.

i like that if i make a mistake, i can salvage the components and start over without a total loss.

it's not if you will make a mistake, but when you will make a mistake!
