I use the hornady collet puller but any one would work.

Great!

Thanks guys! :thumb:

It was getting time consuming, making sure they aren't damaged with pliers...

Hehe...yah, just a few for dissection purposes.

I am starting to reload and want to save the vmax intact.

You need to be careful with those factory VMax rounds if you don't want to damage the bullet. FN glues the bullets in, so one trick you can use is to push the bullet IN to break the seal and then tighten the collet as loosely as it will let you w/o slippage. If you're looking for some cheap 40gr VMaxs EA sells 250 pulled bullets for $20.

I've noticed this. The first time I saw this deal I was so happy, but they were out of stock. Since I didn't know any better I waited for months, determined not to spend any more money for projectiles. After a long wait I finally just bought some other 40 grain z-max.

Are you sure it is due to the bullets? I've reloaded pulled bullets before & didn't notice any significant change in POI.

Really. Interesting.

Show me proof.

Do it.

You probably can't shoot or reload for crap. Just going to call that one. I'm not claiming match grade accuracy, but "big groups"?

Laughable. I say this because I've shot their pulled rounds.

A good idea is to push the bullet in first to break the glue like Grant advised.

I have loaded and shoot EA's pulled bullets and I can say I saw no big groups on my end :skep: take up target practice or better yet you might want to hire someone to properly teach you how to shot for accuracy :lmao: :p

When using factory vmax bullets I get much smaller group than EA pull bullets. Everything is the same but the pull bullets. Didn't you notice the dent where the bullet was pull? It looks like it is crushed. I don't know why they crush it so hard. It is cheaper but not worth it when it throws a pattern instead of a group.

I guess I don't shoot far enough; I'm sorry for my comment if I'm wrong. I only shoot to 25 yards and I got good groups.

Does anyone use an aftermarket glue or sealer when reloading the 5.7? I had a batch of ss190s once that had a purple translucent ring around the seat of the bullet.

WTF am I doing wrong?

I've pulled bullets before but never without ruining the case and/or the bullet. A couple of rounds here or there is no big deal but now I have a few hundred to pull so I really need to learn to do it properly.

Usually what happens is that I either crush the shoulder down or the collet tries to grip on the neck. No matter what I try, it never grips the bullet hard enough. I've watch a couple of videos but can't see where I am going wrong.

Any ideas?

Vote for Hornady.

I'm curious to see these dented bullets, and if someone has a couple, I'd be glad to put them up against some new Vmaxs at 200 yards and see if the group opens up. If they're dented, I'd assume it would.

Rapier, what are you using? How bout a video of you pulling, and we can see where you're having trouble. I've loaded way too hot on way too many expensive match bullets and had to pull them down. I get a scratchy circle on them, and longitudinal scratches where they were seated, but they still fly straight.
