Casehead seperation in LEE 223 reloading die.

OK, I have a case stuck in my Lee .223 die. I try to inspect the brass before it goes in, but this one snuck through and the head of the case seperated

Would a .223 stuck case remover work for removing this case from the die or should I just send the die off to LEE?

Did the rim come off or the whole bottom of the case?

I know the RCBS stuck case remover won't work. Is there any way you can knock it out with a drift punch?

Tried that. I froze the case to get the case to shrink. I won't budge. Now that I think about it, the cold may have gummed up the lube in the case. Mabee I should soak it in WD-40 or something.
