Hornady Cam-Lock Bullet Puller

Hornady Cam-Lock bullet pullerA while back I found some old .280 reloads and realized I’d lost the records for those lots, and at the same time I had a bunch of ammo in oddball cartridges for guns I’d tested over the years and no longer possessed—along with a box and a half of pre-production factory prototypes  for which the final dimensions of the cartridge had changed.

I didn’t want the reloads (except the bullets), and no one wanted the rest—and of course the prototypes had to go. That meant I had a lot of bullets to pull. I’ve always hated kinetic pullers, so I decided to buy Hornady‘s Cam-Lock Bullet Puller and give it a try.

I loved it. It was easy to set up and fast to use, there was no hammering, and the bullets came out of the process relatively undamaged so I could reload them again. Downside? Having to buy individual collets. It was a pain in my case because I had to buy collets for diameters I don’t reload, which won’t be an issue for most folks. But the collets are only about $10, so it’s not a big deal either way.
