Re: GRIP-N-PULL - I put it through its paces.

I load everything looooonnng, thus wouldn't have experienced Mike338's problem.

When I chamber the round in one rifle the bullet gets "marked" and when pulled to either add or reduce chg wt the GNP adds no marks.

Brandon,

Good to see you're into great customer support!

Unless they are severe, bullet marks are irrelevant, as they are erased when the bullet is fired down the barrel anyway.

I agree for small slide scratches. But they don't look good which seems to affect my shooting.

Ham fisting with collet pullers deforms the bullet without leaving a noticeable mark. I checked it out.

I'd tend to think that a ring left around the ogive would have an affect on terminal performance proportional to the severity of the ring.

Good review. I got all three a few weeks ago. Haven't been able to use them yet, but will for sure this weekend. I had some issues chambering 3 rounds I had reloaded- after some assessment, I realized those three rounds didn't have the case necks deburred. Glad I got this tool.

Re: GRIP-N-PULL - I put it through its paces.

I also bought the complete set. Only used it with my 6.5x284 and 300WM so far, but it worked perfectly. My biggest use is when adjusting seating depth with a different bullet and invariably seat the bullet too far in when readjusting the dye. With a little practice I was able to back the bullet out .020" without effecting runout. Nice product!!!!
