Default Anyone have a stuck case puller around?

Just got my new X-die in from RCBS and maybe 300 cases into my reloading I got a case stuck in it. Does anyone have a stuck case remover? I'm definitely gonna be ordering one on my next batch of stuff from Midway

How about a wooden dowel and a mallet?

Wont work. The X-die mandrel won't come out of the neck of the brass so I need to drill/tap it. I'm going to see if I can piece one together at Home Depot

You can make one pretty easily by simple parts at the hardware store. All you need is a bushing that will fit over the case head, a drill bit to drill out the primer pocket all the way through, a tap of the proper size, an allen head screw the same size as the tap and an allen wrench.

Cool

You around the Milton area, if so I may be able to help you out, but would have to see if I can find it?

Well it looks like this die will be going to RCBS to get fixed. I tried the DIY method from the hardware store and I got the bolt a few threads in and the brass didn't wanna give the bolt back. I got a ratchet on the end of it and I guess the bolt was poor quality or something because the top half of the bolt snapped right off. Now I have half of a bolt with no head threaded into the base of some brass with no where to pull it off.

haha well I tried to get innovative today. I went and got some vise grips, went at the sides of the bolt that were left with a dremel and made some flat surface to get some traction on and got it to back on out with the vise grips.

I used a different bolt after running the tap through a few more times and it went in fine but bottomed out on the decapping pin. I have an X-die so the decapper wouldn't come out. I ended up having to cut the case in half and get my decapping pin out. But its back to like new again!
