I made a mistake I'm new to reloading and I bought new case and installed primers before sizing. Can I put them in like a oil of some sort and let soak for like 48 hrs them press them out so I can size my cases and not get blowed up? First learning curve.

I honestly don't know if this was ok to do when I did it, but I did the same thing when I first started and I ended up removing the decapping pin and going real slow and sizing that way. No bangs or anything happened so it worked, but again, I'm no expert at reloading so take what I say with a grain of salt. I know in my short time on here that there's a few guys that are way more suited to provide you an answer to your question.

I'm sure that's probably your best bet. I only did it because I didn't want to waste the primers

All you needed to do is pull the de-capper stem out of your die and size the cases....no bang.....I have sized primed cases by the thousands.

Don't forget to clean your loading area up of any loose powder residue and remove or relocate your powder measure for safety.

Yep. Pull the pin and your good.

Now the oil truck works well when you have a case stuck in a die or something and it has a live primer in it. Gotta drill it or beat it out I want that primer dead first.

Been there done that

Maybe I'm confused .....again. These were NEW cases?  They shouldn't need sizing. Maybe the necks need rounded if severely bent but that is it.

Looks like you've already soaked them, but yes, for future reference, just remove the recapping pin from your sizing die.

And as Greg mentioned, if brand new brass, there's a good chance you could have just sent them up into the die far enough to round out the case mouth. This will also be necessary to do int order to be able to chamfer the inside of the case mouth so you don't shave bullets upon seating.
