You will need a tool to de-moon the empties. Brownells sell some fancy ones or cheaper stamped steel version on ebay. I think some folks used a piece of pipe or socket to slip over the cartridge for extra leverage.

You can spend money, or you can just find an eight-inch piece of 1/2" copper water pipe with one end capped and the other with a crude notch, thusly:

Then, just put it over the cases and twist like a screwdriver.
