Here's a pic of my method, which is pretty much like Lee described. Except I use an air body saw to scoop out the rubber, then cut a notch _almost_ through the metal shell, then use a chisel to split the shell & vise grips to twist the curl of the split shell out.
You can also do this with a jig/sabre saw. Best to use a coarse blade on the rubber, and a finer blade to (almost) saw through the shell. For the picture here, I did it with the air tool & did not change the blade. It gets the job done quick!
Cut the rubber first. Then use a hack saw and cut the steel ring, pry it with a screwdriver and then pull it out with a plier.
