    I have access to several thousand rounds of reload rejects in 9mm, 40S&W and 45acp . Just wondering if anyone uses pulled bullets for their target loads. I use some in mine and to be honest I can't tell that there is a lot of difference in the accuracy.

    My experience has been that if there are not deep pull marks or severely mangled, they shoot as good as I can.
    If you shoot 1.5 inch groups free hand at 25 yards, you may not agree with me.

    Want to sell some of them?

    Took me about a week after work in the evenings but I pulled about 300 projectiles with a kinetic bullet puller. Not a mark on any bullet. Just wears your elbow out

    Yeah I just finished about 1k of 9mm with a collet puller. Took about 3 days after work. Mo came out without a mark. Some were glued in and I had to throw them in the melting pot.
    I have a ton more to pull . It is going to take awhile.

    Don't know which ones are good. Taking a chance shooting em, lol. Better to pull and reuse the components.

    So far I have pulled about 2k. Mostly mixed bullet weight and mixed plated and cast bullets.
    However, most of this stuff is 124 grain coated flat point. So far most of those are coming out clean. I should be able to reuse them.

    pulled bullets work for me. some of the Nato are over crimped and will leave a ring around the bullet.
