Unfortunately I was running some 30-06 casings thru my Hornady full length die to de-prime the casings in preparation of running them thru my tumbler when one got stuck. I probably did everything wrong proceeding the case getting stuck trying to get the darn thing out. First, I tried forcing it out with my press which ripped the rim off the casing. Second, like a moron I unscrewed the collet on the de-priming pin and tried tapping it out first with a rubber mallet and then went with the old adage just get a bigger hammer. At that time I noticed I was mushrooming the threads not thinking about what it was doing to the bell on the other end🙄. Then my inner genius thought I could drill out the bottom of the casing enough to get the de-priming pin out so I could use a punch to drive the casing out. This was somewhat successful in I was able to get the now damaged de-priming pin and bell out of the die. I then found a punch that fit inside the neck and tried driving the casing out that way which removed what was left of the bottom of the casing. It went even better after I decided to get a pair of big channel locks and a wrench in an attempt to twist the stuck casing from the die! This final step left me with a mangled twisted mess at the bottom of what used to be a casing with no sign that it would ever be able to be removed. At this time when everything else failed I decided to read the directions that came with my set of dies and in doing so I read that if you get a casing stuck you can send it to Hornady to have them remove it and if they are unable they will replace the die for free! I called customer service this morning and was completely honest with them on my procedures on the attempted removal of stuck casing. The gentleman who I spoke too didn’t even make fun of me which I deserved but was very helpful and answered several questions I had. Since this was a first for me I wanted to see where I went wrong which I’m not entirely sure still, maybe just been lucky so far. To make a short story long all I have to do is send in the now damaged die and they will either fix it or replace it with a new one for just $15.00 to cover return shipping thru fedex. A whole heck of a lot cheaper than buying a new one! I will post an update on how long this process takes when I receive it back, so far I’m very happy with their service since I figured I would just have to buy a new one being I did everything in my power to screw it up! Has anyone here ever had a case get stuck in a die? If so how did you go about getting it unstuck? I welcome any comments on how to prevent this in the future or even to just poke fun at my attempts for a good laugh.
