After looking at the posts talking about how good the grip n pull bullet puller was it got me thinking about where I had something that looked similar to it in the garage and then it dawned on me. I went and pulled out my wire crimpers and wallaw, it worked! It will do in a pinch, but nowhere as good as the grip n pull I'm sure. It has to be the kind thats round on both sides though. It pulled .257 and .243 bullets great without any marks but I had to squeeze a little harder to pull 270 bullets, they were much tighter in the necks. It slightly marked them up. Just thought I would pass it on.
