New 22/250 Savage model 10. First cartridge chambered and ejected fine. Second went in most of the way with a bit of reluctance and then stopped. Now it won't come out and I have a loaded cartridge stuck. Extractor tore a bit of brass off and skipped over.

Would really rather not unscrew the barrel and go thru that hassle.

Anyone got tricks? Think I will pass on hammering a rod down the barrel lol

I always clean the barrel and chamber on a new gun. I skipped a step and here we are...

Set the rifle upright and pour some Kroil down the bore. Let it set overnight. THEN, put the rod down the bore and give it a little tap, should come right out..

Easy. Cleaning rod down the barrel. Face muzzle (with rod in it) down range, but towards a post or wall. Shove the rifle muzzle, with rod inserted, into the post or wall. Out pops the stuck cartridge.

I read "face muzzle" and almost experienced a moment of TDS......then I continued reading...
Good process.
Remove the bolt first so you have one less thing flopping around.

Is the end of the barrel threaded? This would work. Messy though.



Piece of drill rod down the barrel is probably a lot easier.

A squirt of penetrating oil, a 3/16” wood dowel, and a sharp rap with a mallet.

Jag on rod, into the muzzle, lower until it touches, mark your rod. Fill the bore partially w/Kroil. Now, get a very tight patch onto the jag and work the patch/jag down to create hydraulic pressure. If you're getting too close to the mark and you haven't popped the case out yet, remove the whole works, tighter patch, more Kroil, rinse-repeat.

So far I have not tried the grease gun idea but the others are a no go so far.

Will keep trying to get it loose.

May just say the hell with it and unscrew the barrel

As a former helicopter mechanic, if at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer laugh

Have you tried air pressure? Like with a compressor and a nozzle?

Lol not hitting anything with a hammer. One of our members here did that and set off the round in the chamber.

I would not dump oil in barrel, you're asking for even bigger mess. Throw the barreled action in the freezer overnight, then try to gently tap it out. I'd pull barrel and grab head with locking pliers, but if you don't have the tools....

Freeze trick works. I've done it, but needs to freeze overnight. The metals will contract
