    Unscrew the primer pin and secure it out of the way. Get yourself a stuck case removal set. Follow the instructions! Don't break the tap in the case or your screwed.
    Make sure your die is clean afterward and use a good case lube. I use ch4d sizing wax nd haven't had a stuck case nice I switched to it from case lube. YMMV

    Go on line and look for a Redding RD22000 OR RCBS 63-09340 OR

    HORNADY 050033 Stuck case remover.

    These can be found in the Top Rated Supplier of Firearm Reloading Equipment, Supplies, and Tools - Sinclair Intl site.

    you can screw the expander ball/mandrel loose, and pull it up out of the way (as someone else mentioned).

    Then take a drill and drill about a 5/16" hole, all the way through the primer pocket, into the stuck case. (don't let the drill hit the decapper pin, hold all that out of the way)...

    then take a socket, from your socket set... about a 9/16", 3/8" drive. Socket has to be big enough for case head to fit into.

    Then get a bolt, with threads slightly larger than the hole you drilled in the case head.

    Put the bolt through the socket from the square drive end, then thread the bolt (you'll have to force it a bit) into the hole in the case head. The socket will press against the bottom of the die, and as you tighten the bolt, it'll pull the case out.

    Put the die in a good vise, padded, of course for this...

    The best way I have found to remove stuck case. It works very good and is not very expensive:
