Re: how to remove jammed cartridges from chamber?
[ QUOTE ]
My shooting buddy has been only neck sizing his cases. He recently loaded one into his rifle but could not close the bolt. Now he can't get the cartridge out. I would appreciate all the recommendations any of you will share on getting it out. Thanks. Paul

How far is the bolt "not closed". If the handle is up, or if you can remove the bold, it is easy. Just tap the round out from the muzzle with a cleaning rod and a light hammer.
If, by "not close the bolt", you mean it is almost fully closed, but not all the way, then take a lite piece of wood (2x4) and lightly tap the bolt handle up until the handle up... even if you can't withdraw the cartridge. Then use a rod and tap the round out.
If the bolt is closed, or almost closed, and you can't get the bolt handle up, then take it to a 'smith, cuz it is very dangerous in this condition.
