    REMOVING A STUCK CASE

    First, loosen the decapper. Remove die from press, turn it upside down and reinsert into press. Now with a pair of pliers, grasp the die body inside the press, with a pair of vise grips clamped firmly on the case head twist. Should loosen it up. Now remove the locking nut and the retainer nut. Remove the case, cut the case with a tubing cutter and remove your decapper assembly. I do have a stuck case removal tool I made years ago, but this does work and is less of a hassle for as often it happens. Tools needed, are all hand tools no drilling or tapping necessary.

    Yeah, hope you had better luck. I managed to screw it up and broke the bolt off as I was attempting to get the case out. Apparently, I can't follow instructions well due to old age but the nice folks at RCBS are sending a new or repaired die. They're brobonly had a good laugh over that one.

    Sometimes you think you can when you can't.
