There are many different ways to pull bullets if you need to. This is just 4 ways to pull bullets, but it does show the difference in methods.

I am using hornady...two calibers...but work for many...
Only bullet i have seen problems with are the lrab...soft frontal section...leaves a ring...but I reload them and shoot them.....ridiculous to throw them away.....
Had more rings from being pressed into brand new 65284 lapua brass.....but shot those too......0424201149.jpg

I have tried all but the last method. I have two collets, a grip-n-pull, and two inertia hammers. I prefer the inertia hammer out of the three. However, I do not pull that bullet and have been a long time since I had to pull out a bullet.

For those that use the inertia hammers. If you set up your bullet seating die and and just seat the bullet slightly deeper - just enough to brake any seal between the brass and bullet, the inertia hammer seems to have a lot easier time braking the bullet loose

Conversely, if you use the inertia hammer to break the seal on a bullet and then swap over to the RCBS style collet puller it seems to go much easier as well.
