Broken Kinetic Bullet Puller

I was breaking down 8MM duds and look what happened.
I have searched the garage but unable to find the other half.

It was made by Quinetics Corp.
I purchased this from Midway last century.
I doubt it has a warranty.

Congrats! I see it as a badge of honor to wear certain things out!

Quinetics Corp is still around. Ping them to see what they say. I just bought one from them with the "improve" bushing and it works fine.

I have one on order. The new version looks faster in breaking down the ammo.

My dad's did the same thing about 20 years ago. The design does require a good amount of force to unseat some bullets.

Never broke one but this is why I bought a collet puller for my press.

Looks like my 40+ year old RCBS puller.

I'm amazed they don't break every time I smack them on the bench.

Get an RCBS one. They’ve replaced mine twice.

Mine as well.

Same time frame. I still have it in the original RCBS box. Likely manufactured by Quinetics for RCBS.

I smack those pullers like they are consumables. Only broken one so far, and used a collet puller for fmj rounds. Collet pullers aren't great at gripping cast bullets so those get kinetic pulled.
