What material is the Grip-N-Pull?....Will it squeeze "soft" enough not to deform them but enough to hold them without slipping?...There are probably some "space age" materials out there that might fit that ...
Thanks for sharing,
That would be my concern with the deformation of hte bullet from excess pressure from 2 pinch points.
I love my RCBC collet puller. It is CNC'd and pinches on 3 equal sides. I have never had any issues reusing any bullets that I pulled from other handloads I had made that I decided to go a different route or change something up. The puller, and my RCBS universal decapping/depriming dies have been the best money spent in my reloading equipment, right next to my Chargemaster 1500.
