I prefer a collet-type bullet puller.

Me too. They are the only ones I ever used, I've never had any problems.

I have an RCBS that works fine. My only complaint is that it's not big enough to fit my WSM cases.

I'm sure they are out there, but I've never notice any other bullet pullers out there. I just never noticed I guess. All I can think of is that clear green hammer looking thing.

I do not like having to remove the powder from the hammer. With a collet, this step is not necessary. I use only collet type puller. Broke a plastic hammer type year ago, never bought another.

I read on another site that some folks had primers go off using impact bullet pullers.True?I don't know but if you only need to pull a bullet once in a blue moon a pair of wire cutting pliers works fine.

Pliers work fine if you are only pulling a few bullets, but you damage the bullet. A bullet puller renders an undamaged bullet. Wasting a bullet is not a big concern when talking about a bullet or two, but when dealing with larger quantities it's nice to be able to reuse the bullets.

I personally have never heard of an accidental discharge while using a bullet puller. It seems like that would be unlikely as the case head is not in contact with the tool.
