So last night the kids were in bed, my wife and I wanted to spend some time together, but she was watching a show I had no interest in. So, I thought I'd get out my Lee hand press and resize and clean up some brass at my end of the couch. Yes, I'm a hopeless romantic. Anyway, I was using a RCBS resizing die and the press was taking a little more effort than I thought it should. I was using a homemade lube my brother (who I trust with my life) gave me. On the 5th piece of brass, it REALLY got stuck. I pulled when I should've given up and went to plan B and stripped the extractor groove right off the cartridge. So here's my question - any bright ideas about how to get that cartridge out of the die? Also, does it sound like my homemade lube let me down here or is there a more serious problem?
