You guys are a bunch of pansies. I just lay my hand flat on the bench and strike the back of it.

It does look as if it was hit with the wrong end of the tool. I can believe one will break, otherwise not the way the one in the picture broke. Heck, that one looks coceivable like the round could of almost gone off.
I assure you it was used correctly. I rarely pull bullets with primers, I only use this to pull bullets fom primerless cases that I've set bullet depth/OAL with. Although I did pull 50 rounds once of 40 I thought might be too hot.

No response from RCBS yet btw.

I have beat mine on nothing but cement for 25 years. I am on my third one now.

I normally whack mine on the concrete floor. Now I have a rubber tiled shop, I have to take big pulling jobs to the garage.
For one or two lightly seated bullets, I have an exposed beam end under my bench that is convenient, but that does not work for high bullet pull ammo.

My first puller lasted for years and years, I am just on my second a few months. Pulled a couple of dozen today that the collet press puller would not grab.

I caught my wife tenderizing meat with mine once, she said the Estwing was too heavy.

Not on the cement?

Loaders:
You aren't supposed to hit them on the cement? Yipes. I must have missed that in the directions. Will have to make some changes.
Live well, be safe.
