This is what happens when constant interruptions lead to missing the lube on a rifle case.  Case sticks in die.  Rim tears off and then the fun begins.

That is why I lock myself away when reloading. Better to be antisocial than overload powder or not miss lubing a case.

You're lucky you git it out. Even Hornady couldn't extract mine & I did use their "eco-friendly" pump lube.
They did replace it fr free though.

Yes, this one an 8mm Mauser.   I got it out by drilling and tapping the primer pocket and then used a 1/2 inch deep socket, a washer, nut and 4 inch 1/4-20 cap screw.  It came out relatively easily.

My personal rules for handloading.
 
No one else at home.. No interuptions.
Take phone off hook, switch off mobile/cellphone.
 
No radio on.
 
work for no more than on hour before stopping and taking a break.
 
Life.. a sexually transmitted condition that is invariably fatal.
