I use a small round brass punch that is flat on the end. Set it on the top edge of the case,and hit it,then do it again 180* from the first strike,and repeat.
If you use a brass punch,it won't damage the die at all,so you don't have to worry about that.

Thank you for the suggestion TX, tomorrow I shall go look for a brass punch in the store and give it a try. So far everything I have done doesn't do a thing for it.

If can get a brass punch that is .308" in diameter I imagine it would work?

It is usually impossible to knock these out. The RCBS stuck case remover will remove the case without damage to the die.

I interpret this to mean the entire base is separated from the body. It will need to go in to RCBS. They will either fix it or replace it

If the head of the case is missing a standard broken shell remover for a rifle will remove the brass. It sounds however that the flash hole is reamed out. A stuck case remover uses a 1/4" tap and screw to remove the case.

Is the rim damaged, or is it missing?

A simple way that works well is to put the die in the freezer for a bit, then place back into press and simply punch it back out.

You can purchase a stuck die remover, or simply make one with a socket a nut and bolt. You tube for an instruction, a visual on how to make one is easier than for me to try and explain how to make it.

Morale of story learn to properly lube your brass before sizing I recommend a tin of Imperial Die Wax

You need a RCBS "stuck case" removal tool.

Stuck case removal tool will not help if the entire case head is gone

If the entire case head is missing, I would send the die back to the manufacturer and let them do it rather than take a chance on damaging the die.
