Avoiding crushed case necks

Q. When using one of your collet style bullet pullers, I occasionally end up with a crushed case neck. Any idea what would be causing this?

A. We suggest that you pre-tension the collet when you set up the tool so that the collet is slightly larger than the bullet diameter. This will allow you to stop the upward stroke of the press before the neck of the case enters the collet.
