    This happened to me for the first time in my 54 years of reloading.
    I pulled out the decapper stem and tried to punch it out from the top to no avail then tried to twist a screw driver inside the case to no avail.
    this is how I got out.
    I cleaned out the inside of case with sand paper then
    I poured melted cerrosafe in it then punched it out from the top with a drift punch it came out very easy.

    Yeah, and you can reuse the cerrosafe.
