I'm going to have to be a little more gentle then. I like the metal shaft on mine.

I've always heard there is a special place in heaven for broken RCBS bullet pullers.
Square the end up good and a heavy piece of pvc pipe fitted over it with the end cap glued on and glued onto the puller. Maybe a couple pins on the seams even should rejuvienate it for more use. Mine broke after 20 years of use where the handle head joined.
That sure is a fancy sittin stool that beaver made!
I broke one exactly like yours about a year ago. Called RCBS and they sent me a new one. The current model is the same except the handle is entirely plastic. Works the same though. I do believe the shock felt in your hand is less with the all plastic model.
Hey, was your puller on the organ donor list?

I have both types I reach for the plastic one.
the last metal one I broke was years ago when my mom was with us at a gun show.
she found one for like 2$ and asked if we needed it.
pop laughed and said no we got one.
he broke it within an hour of use getting home from the show.
the metal one I have now is the 2$ one he went back and got that afternoon.
it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.
this opinion brought to you by mister low-tech solution..
Mine is a Quinetics, the original design. The first one I broke (about six months after I got it), they replaced for free. This second one took thirty years of heavy use and abuse before it broke behind where the handle joins the head. I think it had something to do with dispensing with the worn aluminum shell rim chuck and using much heavier snap-in shell holders to hold the cartridges.
I sent in a photo of the broken one and got a discount on a new one. Fair enough; the old one owed me nothing. The new edition still has the metal handle, but an improved design shell rim chuck. I filled the remains of the old one with a slurry of lead shot and epoxy glue, polished the scratches out of the nose, and now have a precision dead-blow plastic mallet for tapping shells into full-length sizing dies, drifting sights and loosening side plates.
