Things I learn not to repeat.

As I finished adjusting my Redding body sizing die to set the shoulder back about 0.001" and I coated the inside with CRP in preparation to storing it and then thought I might check my measurement one more time. So I lightly coated the next case with Imperial wax and sized the case. It stuck, boy did it stick! After pulling the lips off the case head and hammering out the primer area with a Phillips head screw driver and using a Propane torch to heat the die, three hours later I got the case out.
The die seems OK and I cleaned it back up but I will always make sure my sizing dies are clean and dry before use.
I will next purchase a "stuck case remover" but I think I might have broken my press on this one.
All the best, Bill
