How I pull bullets

Postby jaysny87 » Sun Mar 01, 2015 12:54 am

Try not to laugh me off the forum for this.....

I was working out on the reloading bench earlier and thought i would share.
Let me start off by saying i don't pull bullets very often but when i do i have a unorthodox yet effective method.

here it is

Image

its a drill chuck that came with my cement mixer/drill motor.
but it actually works pretty well as a bullet puller

First i load a round into the shell holder and raise the ram to the top
Image

then tighten the chuck onto the bullet to be pulled but not so tight that it would deform the bullet.
Image

Then lower the ram just as you would with a normal bullet puller and it comes right out no problem.
Image

There she is.
Image

The bullets come out without a scratch. And no these are not sierra bullets, just an old sierra box. These are Monarch (Barnaul?) 185gr FMJBT.

Image

It actually goes pretty fast once you get into a rhythm. And i am yet to deform or ruin a bullet doing it this way.
I would just buy a bullet puller but i figure i shouldn't waste the money if the system i use works. Plus it works with multiple calibers.

Anyways i know its kinda funny but i just thought i would share.
thanks for looking

Hmmmm now I'm thinking what about a keyless chuck? Would be easier on the hands.. Great job thinking outside the box for sure.
