Trying to remove a stuck case in a reloading die. So far I have disassembled the die, reamed out the case neck in a drill press, and pulled the expander/ decapper out. I will next press out the stuck case. It is important to remember to use the minimum length of pin necessary to press it out. This pin should have the maximum possible diameter and should not have sharp edges on the end going into the die. This is to prevent it from punching through the case head as well as bending. (Some WD40 doesn’t hurt either). Since the bench vice proved insufficient, I shall build a frame around a bottle jack and use that as a press. I am using a wooden spacer with plenty of clearance (to allow for crushing) to hold my die. This should allow for enough room to permit the stuck case to move backward out of the die. Hope this post is helpful if you have to clear a stuck die!

Cheap nr I mk iii stocks can be had from ishapore 7,62 enfields, but you will need to do some bedding. Take down the draws beyond what is necessary and shim them up to a tight fit with orange juice carton cardboard cleaned, soaked in oil, and glued in place. These shims should also be used throughout the gun as needed to bed your forestock.

As an aside, to anyone possessing a stock duplicator, enfield forestocks offer the greatest profit. They are faster to make, require less wood, and are incredibly scarce.

A nr I mk iii forestock without ishy screw can go for over $200 nowadays; it should take an hour or so to make on a stock duplicator
