    Wife got me a life saver today.

    My wife stopped at Sportsman's Warehouse after work to get herself some more Remington Ultimate Defense for her .380. She was looking at the reloading stuff, and got me a new tool(along with another 2K of SPP). The Frankford Arsenal Platinum Stuck Case Remover. It snaps in place of your shell holder, clamps onto the shell(uses an Allen wrench to tighten), and rips that booger right out of there. It's made of tool steel, and the jaws have sharp edges. I tried it by intentionally sticking a case in my Lee 30-06 die with very little lube. Classic ripped case head. Slapped this booger on there, and it made the stuck case cry uncle. It closes down small enough to grab .223 cases as well. No more pounding the decapping pin with a punch for me.

    Looks like a nice tool but in the 57 years that I've been reloading I can count on one hand the number of cases I've had stuck in a die. I lube everything including straight wall cases using carbide dies. It's just smoother that way. You must be doing something wrong to have that many problems with stuck cases.

    I thunk I have had maybe 2-3 stuck cases over the many years and they were rifle cases except for the 30 Herritt cases that I do remember got stuck..
    I tend to be sure and lube instead of trying to get a stuck case out of a die myself.
    course I don't reload much rifle anymore , the main thing now is the 300 BO, which thinks its a pistol caliber.

    What a great thing to have a wife like that! Seriously!
    But like the comments above, I don't see much of a need. I don't reload anymore, but when I did, I never had a stuck case.

    I just bought a new .223 resizing die after giving up on my last stuck case. I think this one was #3 and we know the third one is the charm..
