Okay... I need to pull the bullets from some loaded ammo. What's the best way to do it? The rebated rim makes using my inertia hammer impractical because the 3-split shell holders can't get a grip on the round. Any advice? If I have to order a collet pulling system, which one is recommended and what items do I need? Thanks.

Use a standard shell holder (like you use on your press) instead of the 3 piece collet in your inerta hammer

I flip the three jaw collet upside down and pull bullets that way.

I have a collet puller. Much better than the hammer types.

Man.... these forums are the cat's meow! I love them. I never thought of that... using the Lee/RCBS shellholder from your press in your inertia puller and forget about those silly 3-piece collets held together with the o-ring. It worked perfectly. I just needed to lengthen the OAL on some loaded cartridges and this method allowed me to do it effortlessly.

Thanks guys!
