I get my cases nice and greasy with Imperial Die Wax which has worked for me thousands of times without ever getting a case stuck. Yesterday this winning streak came to a miserable end. Piece of 220 Swift brass stuck in RCBS FL resizing die.

I probably won't be able to get this one out, ever. Oh well :cry:

Drill and tap the stuck case. Use a bolt and spacer to extract it. It should come right out. Just be careful not to bend the decaping pin. They sell all this as a kit if you want too. I just turned a spacer in the lathe and had taps available.

Wow. Thanks for all the friendly offers to help me with this little issue. I ordered the kit so I'll get it out myself in a couple of days or so. But again, Bigdog Sigfan and Rip van Winkle, much appreciated.
