It's actually easier (no paperwork) to sell the appropriate RMD amount of a security, transfer the cash to the non-retirement brokerage account, and then buy back the stock.

I was going to do this in January with some BRK-A stock. But before I did it, I noticed that the value of the stock I was going to transfer jumped up $500 in one day. Doing a sell + transfer cash + buy leaves an open window where you can miss out on a jump in price. Didn't want to take that chance, so I did the paperwork to just transfer the security.
