    If I understand correctly, you have a shell stuck in the crimping die.

    Shut off the powder and shot. Loosen the lock nut on top of the crimp die plug and back the plug out. The stuck shell might fall out with that. If not, loosen the die body lock nut and pull the die out. Chuck the die up in a vise and twist/pull the stuck shell out with a pair of channel lock pliers. Clean everything up, reassemble and start over beginning with an empty turret.

    If you do what Wolfram suggests, note precisely where everything is, and how many turns to get things disassembled, so you can put it back the way it was before you took it apart.

    Yea, I forgot to mention that backing out the punch and/or die body will require re-adjustments unless you do what Tim said. I tend to go a bit cavemannish on these misadventures. Nothing like a learning experience.

    Plan on spilling at least a pound of shot, too, LOL. I own three of the damn things - I love them - but when I'm working on them, I usually spill components.

    It should come out pretty easy if you can pull the crimp die.

    Nailer there is a learning curve but you will survive it. Sometimes you need to hang it up for the day and try again tomorrow. Glad you are up and running.
