I would have used a 6 point socket from the start not a 12 point now that it's all fudgeed up I would get a big pair of channel locks and use a manly grip that's about all I can suggest .
Not sure if heating it up will help .
If this dont work dremel slot the middle and use a heavy duty screw driver that you can put a Cresent on the shaft to turn it or a pipe wrench .

I just talked to Rick over at Sapphire. He suggested drilling a hole in it and using an E-Z out to remove it. Joes suggestion above will work too.

grind the heck out of it on one side until you almost see the threads. hit it with a chissel and a hammer counterclockwise on the grounded side. that baby will come loose faster than I fart. heck, I have even remove them by hand after grinding

I would chisle a slot in it nice and deep. Then use a flathead at the right angle with a hammer and turn it. Start with an impact and 6 point socket next time.

Drill and easy out prob save you some busted knuckles and flustration. Been there to many times that brass that's been heated and cooled is a bit to get loose
