    Had a 300RUM case get stuck last night. Arrggghhhh!
    Having been down that road a few times before, here's how I handle it:
    Tools: dent puller, #7 drill, 10-32UNF Tap, 10-32 x 1" screw
    1) Back out the decapper rod.
    2) Drill out the flash hole & tap.
    3) Remove sheet metal screw from dent puller collar & replace with 10-32 machine screw.
    4) Screw assembly into flash hole

    5) mount die in a hole where you can get leverage for the ram. Here I'm using a drill press stage.

    6) screw it all together and go to work.
    Finished.

    Made me chuckle (no pun intended), coming from a proper Charlie Brown.

    This one was stuck so bad, the 10-32 stripped all the brass threads and came out on the first whack. I retapped it to 1/4-20 without redrilling the hole so I had 100% thread depth. Did it all over again, and it took 3 hard whacks to get the sucker out. Loaded 50 rounds today.... :D
