    I've got 160-170 rounds of loaded 17 Rem cartridges. These came with a barrel I bought and have since sold and I have no clue what the load is. They are a mixture of several different headstamps, from resized 5.56 to factory R-P 17 Rem. Since I didnt load them and I didnt have the load info, I wouldn't shoot them when I had the barrel. It seems a shame to throw them away so I decided to try and pull the bullets using a kinetic bullet puller, but...it turns out that the 20-25 grain bullets dont have enough weight to come out. Any ideas on how to disassemble these and save the bullets? Or do I just trash the cartridges?

    Sold the whole mess to somebody that wanted to mess with them for 10 bucks...
