Hornady® Cam-Lock™ Bullet Puller Collets
Works very well.
I had some French 7.5x54mm MAS ammo that I wanted to change the powder charge. I hate waste and wanted to be able to reuse my bullets. I purchased the Hornady Cam-Lock Bullet puller and the .308 caliber collet. It worked like a charm with no discernible marks to the bullets. I have used this puller with over 50 rounds (7.5mm MAS and 7.5 Swiss) over the past 2 months with absolutely no issues. Excellent product at a good price. One caution: Be sure to carefully follow the provided instructions. You can break the hardened steel collets if you over-tighten the collet and/or pinch the case neck by moving the cartridge too far into the die. Go easy as you do not need a very tight "grip" on the bullet even with tightly crimped bullets.

Needed to pull about 150 bullets that were loaded for 223 and wouldn't fit 5.56Nato. The Hornady collet worked fine and I liked the fact it was sold out everywhere but BassPro had itin stock.

This is a great product. Works well with the bullet puller. I feel that it's a little to high priced and would have bought more calibers if they would have been less expensive.

Only collet for me
I have been using the Cam lock bullet puller for over 4 years now. This puller along with the collets is hands down the best puller on the market.
Hornady makes one for just about every caliber around. I load some wildcat rounds, and they make one for them as well.
Extra Collets are priced very reasonable compared to other brands. I have one for every caliber I load. Hammer type or inertia type pullers are cheap and dangerous. The collet type is very safe.
Packaging was great on the collets. I store my collets on a peg board and use them all the time. Some collets are over 4 years old. The packaging and the collet are all in perfect shape. I clean mine after every use. I just run a 45 caliber nylon brush down the inside, cleaning off all the dirt and grime, and wipe down with an oil soaked rag.
If your just getting into hand loading or a veteran, these collets along with the Hornady bullet puller are a must to fix your mistakes, save or re-use components or just deactivate a live round.
