I've had a round fire the second time that I tried it, so I wouldn't rule out any danger. On the other hand, I've pulled plenty of bullets from live and "dud" rounds with no problems.Once the primer has been struck and a hangfire has been ruled out, there's no longer any additional danger that I'm aware of.
Sure a second primer strike by a firing pin can often fire the round, but the danger from properly using a bullet puller is nil once a hangfire has been ruled out. A proper bullet puller protects the primer form being struck.I've had a round fire the second time that I tried it, so I wouldn't rule out any danger.

I totally agree Mr Brownie .. It only takes [ 1 ] even after hundreds to thousands , IMHO . Is it really worth your eyesight or worse .. safety glasses do nothing to protect your throat ..Just ask Brownie about throat vulnerabilities - Even small onesAfter 48 hours perhaps, but why bother to take any chance at all?
That is one load of bullets to pull , no less [ 500 ] ..I've had inert , 'no primers' installed at all , and they were so damn tight i actually broke my bullet puller that snapped in half .. It would not work on my rug over a concrete slab .The most bullets I’ve pulled at one time was 500. One at a time, with an inertia bullet puller. Two days after I’d loaded them.
Old batteries in a digital scale caused me to have loads that that were over a maximum charge, so they all got pulled and reloaded, after new batteries in the digital, and that double checked with an old Lyman balance-beam scale.
