Ya I've done it with pliers for years but this way I can reuse the bullets and not have to worry about accuracy because of the deformation of the bullet. ;)

The GRIP-N-PULL works very well.

Or you could just buy a collet puller with individual collets per bullet diameter...

I use one and it has been well worth the money.

With the GRIP-N-PULL you don't have to pay for all the different collets. The GRIP-N-PULL does 9 different calibers on one tool and you don't have to thread anything in you just squeeze and pull. It is a lot faster and less expensive than buying the collet puller and all the collets, works better too!

Re: Reloaders dream bullet puller

Speed between the 2 is a wash, the time saved over installing the RCBS puller and right collet would be offset by setting the other down and picking it up every time besides you pull 50 or so bullets it's going to wear on ya. Cost isn't that big of a difference, how many folks have a need to pull 9 different calibers? the RCBS and 2 collets is about the same price, and if a guy already has the RCBS the collets are $10ea.

They both are light years better than an inertia puller though. Props to the guy that came up with this new puller!
