so just how long are these hammer things supposed to last?

    plenty of use (sporadically off & on) over the last couple decades: sounded different wacking with it today....not really disappointed....just rather surprised...

    what's a better more modern product to replace the old darling?

    Used one of those pullers for years. Difficult at best to pull 223. Changed to RCBS collet
    bullet puller. :D:D So much easier. Should of bought one years ago.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    My use is primarily pistol calibers; I've got a frame mount collet set up if needed (as on some 308 a few years ago); almost never reload 223.

    Looks exactly like mine. Uum not broken of course. Whacked lots of bullets out with mine. It is years old now. I figure when it breaks I will just buy another one. Franklin makes good stuff in my experience.

    I don't think you're supposed to be using it that often... :p

    Figure out the cost per bullet removed over the decades and then compare to modern prices and then ask, should I buy one or three more :D

    So far the only use I've had for mine was when I found out how high you can boost chamber
    pressure by seating bullets too deep.:eek::eek::eek:

    P.S. They don't work worth a dam pounded on a wooden bench.:rolleyes:

    Just buy a new one, I use an RCBS hammer. The collet style pullers are faster for large quantities but if you just have one to pull the hammer is better than setting up the collet.
