    Wow, I wonder how many beers papa had when he wrote his reply.

    Place shell in jaws, squeeze firmly and rotate shell, if you squeeze to hard you do cut the wad. FD

    There is a guy on here who sells a shell cuuter for $25 or two for $45. I too used to use the pvc cutter and I laughed at some of the people on here buying his cutter because of the price. Well, I broke down and ordered one ( actually two, I got one for a special friend) I threw my PVC cutter out and so will you if you get one of his. His name is Gary Hughes( Bully enterprises in Montana) Do yourself a favor and buy one. Top shelf in quality and works like a champ.

    I agree with cubancigar2000, the Bulley shell cutter allows you to save the wad along with everything else. The hull is the only thing lost.

    cut behind the wad if you want to keep it but reused wads that have been crushed will give bad crimps sometimes rick

    I bought one of the milled aluminum shell cutters that someone on this site makes and sells. I just finished disassembling 4 1/2 flats of over-pressure reloads and I can't say enough good about that cutter. One twist cuts the hull all the way through.

    Thanks to whomever builds those things (the name Rossman sticks in my mind?)!

    Good idea, works great. Should be included with new reloaders.
