Product plug... Grip-N-Pull Bullet Puller... AWESOME!

The other day I got ahead of myself and loaded up 200rds of .223 55gr plinking stuff without checking the brass. I thought these had been trimmed, but I got that funny feeling when I was done and checked... 1.770". I loaded a mag and cycled a bunch through with the charging handle and they were definitely getting pinched.

I thought maybe I could see if a buddy had a bolt-gun that would run them, because there was no way I was pounding out 200rds with my trusty Dillon hammer, but decided against it just for safety.

So I did a bit of Google'ing and found the Grip-N-Pull... JACKPOT! It took me about 20 minutes to pull all 200rds, with a lot of that time experimenting with which side they pulled best from and how to angle the puller across the top of my press. What worked best for me for .223 was actually to use the .240 hole with the wrench upside down. These were just 55gr plinking rounds, so I didn't mind the occasional pull mark in exchange for the speed I was able to do this. If these had been .30cal Berger's, I'd certainly have taken way more time so I didn't mar any of them. It's certainly capable of pulling without leaving a mark.

With the head removed on my Dillon 500 and the retainer buttons for both the powder drop and bullet seater position removed, I could insert and pull 2 rounds at a time almost as fast as I could cycle the handle. Highly recommended product even for pulling a single bullet. It would certainly take me less time to pull the head off my Dillon and use the G-N-P than it would to grab the hammer, fit the round in the collet, screw the head on, and pound the bullet out... especially if it was good and crimped.

I bought the "standard rifle" model which covers all 4 rifle calibers I shoot. Worth every penny!

Pliers with electrical tape wrapped around teeth work great too
