I left the die installed and removed the guts....took a wooden dowel and put that down into the die and gave it a good SMACK with a hammer.....case came right out

Re: Case stuck in die. Help Please.

I thought about that, but the case sizing ball would not come out of the top.. That was actually the first idea. The case was all of the way in so the mouth was still being sized. If it would have been a little bit further down then I could have done that.

And SidecarFlip it was a RCBS die that I wanted to keep! I have had it for many, many years and it has always worked well. I did think that I was going to have to dig the case out possibly damaging it, but like I said, the case remover worked great so she was up and sizing more cases last night. Thoroughly lubed of course!!
