Pulling bullets. Is there a faster method?

I want to pull the bullets out of about 1000 rounds of 9 m m. They were given to me by a friend but the oal it's too short and I'm afraid of overpressure. Apparently his father who recently passed away was a reloader and had these. I have a kinetic bullet puller that does one at a time but that would take forever. Is there a machine or an easier method?

One of these or a collet puller from RCBS or Hornady

You could also just shoot them out of a Hi Point or something

Ken, do you have one of these grip and pulls? Wondering how much damage (if any) the collet causes on the pulled bullet? Curious, as that's been the problem with the collet pullers I've seen.

I don't, but I have used the RCBS collet puller. It always seems to leave marks on bullets.

Yep! My experience as well.
Maybe someone will be along who has tried this newer model. I'm sure it would sell if its any good. Thanks!

No thanks. My load data for the bullet weight says they should be 1.15 inches overall length and these are 1.06.. I think that's going to cause a pretty dramatic increase in pressure that not even a high point could stand. I think the guy who reloaded them realized his mistake and set them aside to be pulled and then never got to them. I pulled one apart they appear to be loaded with universal and according to the load data on the ammo can I was given that supposedly what the powder is but I'm not going to trust it. I'm going to pull all the bullets and the powder will become fertilizer and I will put fresh universal in when I put them back together

have used the Hornady cam lock puller, works quick enough, and when set properly will leave minimal marks on the bullet. Only real issue is how to go faster than a single stage, they won't feed through a case or bullet feeder, so you are stuck on a single stage, or hand feeding them into a progressive.

still faster than a kinetic hammer. I can do 2 maybe 3 per minute...

Hornady Cam Lock would be my choice. TBH, I am not sure pulling what is probably $30-$50 of bullets is worth hours of time.

Cool, available on Amazon.
I"m going to try that out, getting tired of using kinetic and putting my ear protection on.
