Re: The grip-n-pull

I quit using the inertia thing when the first wack bounced the primer about half way out (primer pockets were extremely loose I load hot

The second wack set off the primer which bounced around the shop long enough for me to dive under a work bench.

Luckily the 100 grains of US-869 didn't ignite. I bent the handle double and chucked the thing in the trash can.

I use the Grip n Pull and find it very useful. It's much faster than the collet type.

    It will pull coated bullets just fine. I also wasn't paying attention and ordered the large caliber puller before the standard. If someone wants that large caliber puller I have no use for it let me know and Ill send it to you.

    Never had one detonate in all these years. Primers as a rule don't make a big bang. I've dry fired my CVA Accura with a 209 in the breechplug a few rimes and a 209 is a lot bigger than even a LR Magnum and it just goes ping....

    The name 'Grip and Pull' conjures up illicit images......

    I bought one last week because I had several different caliber mistakes to take care of and it works amazingly well. I have used the inertia puller and HATE it. I probably spend two minutes on average hammering out each bullet. This thing can do 20 in two minutes. What a time saver and once you get the grip just right it grips without marking the bullets. Great tool way worth the $40
