Things I learn not to repeat

Thanks to all for your thoughts.
Guffey- I did not break the press but was concerned I might if I had tried a "stuck case remover" The CRP was my mistake but when burned with a torch leaves a attractive blue finish and no I won't be using that method to beautify any more dies.
Crusty- the body sizing die is open and as you suggested I tried to pound it free but only succeeded in punching a hole through the case head. As mentioned it was stuck, Space Shuttle re-entry heat shield tile stuuuck.
Uncle Nick- thanks for the metallurgy lesson. How long do you freeze the die before attempting to dislodge the case.
JR and sigshepardo- thanks also for your advice.
Prosecute criminals to the fullest extent of the law and their weapons will become harmless.
