How to remove a stuck case

Even the most experienced reloader will occasionally get a case stuck in a sizing die. There are a few different tool kits out there to help you remove them but the one I use is the RCBS stuck case removal kit. It is very easy to use and has not failed me yet (I have had to use it quite a few times). The only thing I would recommend is also picking up a tap wrench if you don’t have one.
