    All the above posts are good to try. I would use a brass gas brazing rod as near to bore size as possible and, with the bolt removed from rifle, put the rifle butt on the floor and drop the rod into the muzzle end of the barrel. Start with a short drop and if the cartridge doesn't move increase the amount of drop but I don't think it will require too much to get it out. Usually a light tap of the rod will romove them.

    Carry a flexible cable cleaning rod just for that.

    Did you forget to trim your brass? Did the rim get ripped off by the extractor?

    I almost forgot, I've stuck a live round, I had reloaded a case that had case expanstion. Uncle almost did in his 1911, when he didn't trim the brass.

    I've stuck cases, from overpressure. My fault!

    I can't say I've ever stuck a live round.
    All plans are good plans but some times the execution is problematic.


    Two things about the cleaning rod method

    First make sure you do not have a tip on it and you get the nose of the bullet into the female end of the rod so the rod does not get between the bullet and the barrel and scratch up your barrel and jam the bullet even worse. If the bullet pushes down into the case then you have reduced the pressure but now need to pour water into the barrel to wet down the powder and primer before you do much more.

    Secondly make sure the barrel is pointed in a safe direction and that your hand is the only thing above the barrel.

    Re: Live round stuck in chamber Rem 700

    An old aluminum cleaning rod is what I have used, no tip. Don't use anything
    that can splinter and jam around the bullet. (seen that on another thread) Stuff a
    rag in the receiver so the case doesn't fly out and whack the primer on something. You
    can pound on that rod pretty hard. I don't use my hand though. A foot or so of 2x4 makes
    a safer hammer. Remember if it does blow (never heard of one doing it) the rod is going
    to add enough weight that the main explosion is going to be out the chamber end. That
    is where you want some protection. A nice thick piece of plywood between you and the
    gun is not a bad idea.
