Google and you will find incidents that didn't involve shell holder. All I have read, the round went off when the hammer impacted the anvil, not before. It doesn't fit the high primer + shell holder theory.

But anyway I use the RCBS puller whenever I can. The hammer is there to assist.

I have geared up with protection and abused primers to see how far you can push them.

It takes a lot deliberate to get one to go boom other than in a primer pocket with a good strike..

My "hammer" puller has a solid handle and no direct contact with the interior of the pullet where the cartridge goes.

Still waiting for an explanation of your equipment and methods that allows you to "lose" powder into the handle.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
