atvjunkie821 was right. Before I read his post, I tried heat... I tried multiple drill bits... nothing touched it. Then I went to the school where I teach and used a carbide endmill bit in our milling machine. It took a little time, but I got the pin out and the Magnum is back together and running tonight.

Thanks so much to everyone for the help!

I'm rebuilding a 96 xplorer 300 and thought I'd tell everyone how I managed to get my pins out.

first I let them soak overnight with some penetrating oil and the next day that hadnt helped any so I broke out the dremel with a cutting bit and put a notch in the top of the pin. then I used a screwdriver to work the pin loose. that worked on one but the other was still stuck pretty bad so I hit it with an impact screwdriver and that broke it free. after working it around to get the oil in I was able to get it out with needle nose pliers.

my piston isnt going all the way back in also but I figure I need to just push it out and cleaned it up some. built up gunk from years of no pads on it.
