Ethiopian 8MM Duds

Last year I purchased a good supply of subject ammo from SG Ammo.
The Yankee that I am wanted to reload the duds in boxer primed brass.
I have not been able to pull the bullet with a Kinetic hammer type device. I have not been able to see any forward movement.
Any suggestions?

Sometimes a sealant will 'glue' the bullet in and using a seating die to just bump the bullet down a few thousandths will break the seal and allow the puller to move the bullet.

Stop calling anti-gun politicians “stupid”. They are not. The continuing assault on gun owners and the Constitution/BoR has nothing to do with street-level crime and you will not “educate them” your way out of this.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.

Collet-style bullet puller should do the job. More expensive, but they work. Good luck finding any during the current shortage though. Ebay is your best bet right now.

Bummer. How many of a given box are duds? I hope that its only a handful. Stupid question, but are you shooting a Mauser?

I have an 8mm puller that is like pliers, I forgot the name. you put it in your press w/o a die and grab it from the top then lower the ram.
I used it on 600 rounds of heavily crimped Iranian 8mm where I pulled the components. I put some grip tape on handles so it does not hurt when you squeeze hard.
I can let you borrow it meeting up at AGC during the week.

Strike the hammer against the end grain of a 4x4 or 6x6 block sitting on a concrete floor. Some of them come right out with 1-2 blows, others take 6-8 but every single one has come apart. I got the chinese frankford arsenal one that I have yet to break and I have had to hit that thing HARD to get some of the bullets out.

I bought 3 of the 'battle packs' from SG in 2019. 3 in 15 were duds, every other one hang fires. Down to the last pack left to break them down and save the bullet. They are magnetic at least

Instead of whacking them, place in vice and squeeze until you see movement. That's it, several can be squeezed at a time to speed things up.

I slammed it on an anvil as hard as I could. No movement.
