Search Function for boards? Bullet puller

Yesterday, I wanted to get some advice on a bullet puller (I don’t like my inertial hammer style).  To my surprise, I couldn’t find the search function anymore.

    Just ask...plenty of educated opinions around here...

    I have used an inertia type bullet puller for years...as long as you cram a couple of cotton balls in the bottom of the chamber...

    I bought a collet type puller because there was less fuss to use, but I found with some bullets, (those with thin jackets such as the Nosler Ballistic Tips and Hornady SSTs) it garfed up the bullets too much...

    Still use both...depending on what I'm trying to accomplish

    RCBS collet bullet puller. Might put a slight ring on your ogive, but a 600 yard pdog will never notice the difference. I'll never use an inertia puller again. And a collet puller is waaaay faster.

    I have both. If I’m just yanking one or two bullets, I use the inertial. 

    If I’m pulling a bunch, I have a Forster collet die (I use a Forster Press). 

    I used the inertial puller for 75 rounds once. That sucked yam sacks.

    Thanks. I am at the research stage.  I swear that we used to have a search function to find old posts.

    They are using it to find our old posts from past crashes. They’ll bring it back when they find them, I’m sure.

    i have a RCBS and Midway.

    The RCBS only had 1 collet and the collet finally got too buggered up to use.

    The MIDWAY has 4? collets.  Its still going strong.

    I don't use a phone for this but on my laptop I see it at the very top of the page. The search box runs across the entire with of the screen.
