Re: Stuck case problem solved! With pictures.
I drilled and tapped the .30 cal case head to 1/4x20. Then I drilled a shallow hole about the size of the die in a scrap block of wood, and another hole large enough to accept the diameter of the case but too small for the die to go through (centered on the shallow hole) all the way through the block. Put the die/stuck case on one side, put a washer under the 1/4x20 bolt and turned it. Piece-o-cake.
Smaller caliber = smaller bolt.
