You placed your well lubed case into the die, then forced it completely into the die using a bench-vice or press if you had access to one. The case then needed to be driven out of the die with a punch that would fit the case-mouth.
As previously mentioned a reloading press and a FL die make life a lot simpler.
I carried a 310 set with powder and projectiles over rather a lot of NZ once upon a time, and they certainly served their purpose. I still prefer to load with it when away from home and use a combination of a Lee collet die and the 310 for priming and bullet seating when at home. Simple, effective, and accurate.
