I was loading some .30-06 rounds today and stuck the first case in the resizing die. I quickly grabbed the RCBS Stuck Case Remover tool. It has been some years since I stuck a case in a resizing die and I forgot how to use it. After a bit of trial and error I got things sorted out, removed the stuck case and reloaded the rest of the .30-06 cases. It is humbling to trip over your own feet in this manner, but it happens. Take care. All the best...
Gil

Been there Gil. The first time I tried Hornady One Shot I didn't wait long enough to try sizing some .220 Swifts. Got one stuck GOOD. I rig a case remover up with a wrench socket and some washers, etc. I bought a tool immediately afterwards.

Gil, at least you were prepared. It is rather a scary situation when this happens for a beginner. What lube were you using?

I, too , have been there.

I assembled my own remover using tools I already had. They are still in the Erinmore tin.

slimjim,

I was using RCBS resizing lube on a pad and had rolled the cases back and forth several times. The case appeared to be properly lubed and was tight going into the die. When I lowered the press ram the case rim came off in the shell holder. All the best...

I now use Imperial wax and have never had an issue with it. It was recommended to me after I had a stuck case with a spray lube.

Getting one out of a chamber without the correct tools is even more fun... Very Happy

Ah, the voice of experience mate. Adapt and overcome.

On the strength of this thread, I am going to start sniffing around for a ex mil ruptured cartridge case extractor...a great piece of kit that is easy to use and is perfect for the job.

I’ve never had a case get stuck in a die, and as I use Imperial Sizing Wax now I don’t anticipate it happening...but then again there is always Murphy’s Law. burr

I actually have a complete RCBS stuck case removal kit but in this instance it was 200 miles away, so some allthread, nuts & an errant piece of bar were pressed into use.
I was surprised how solidly stuck the damn' case was too.

I had a stuck bullet in my AR one. I filled the barrel with water, capped the openings, and stuck it in the freezer.

That's funny Elvis, 'cause I love the Lee lube. I had one stuck case because I didn't put enough on.

When I load .223, I mix it with rubbing alcohol in a pump bottle and spray the cases, that are on an old cookie sheet, and then resize.

Got my first ever case stuck in a die the other night. I bought the RCBS removal kit years ago hoping to never need it. I got the case out of the die body (after a little head scratchin' and cussin'), but the expander was still inside the case. I ended up unscrewing the expander and cutting the case open with a Dremel to get it out.

I used the RCBS lube pad for years with no problems. Friend hooked me up with some pure lanolin. Stuff works great.

Oh. And a comment on One Shot. I tried it and had cases that indicated that they were about to get stuck in my dies. I did, however, found out that One Shot makes a good anti-squeek lube for rocking chairs and recliners.
