Was out shooting today and had a case seperate at the shoulder in the chamber and cant get it out any tips or tricks to accomplishing this or does this have to go to a smith!?

A [url=http://store.yahoo.com/cdnn/arbrokshelex.html]Broken shell extractor[/url] is worth it's weight in gold. I keep one in my range bag and in each buttstock compartment. Any decent smith should have this tool. It will remove the broken case as fast as you can chamber and extract a round.

Tapco sells broken shell extractors. you will be able to find a tap at a hardware store that would be the proper diam to cut into the brass without cutting through into the chamber. Take a small wrench through the ejection port and screw the tap into the brass. then drop a rod down the barrel and tap it out.

wrap a peice of steel wool around a bore brush. Stuff it in the chamber and pull the broken case out. The steel wool will expand around the case of the mouth. If this trick doesn't work you will have to use a case extractor. You may have to adjust the amount of steel wool that you use until it gives you enough grip. cruizer

Similar to what cruizer said, I've always used a chamber brush. Never had to use a broken shell extractor tho I do have one in the tool box.

Try using your chamber brush to see if it will grap the case. The few times it has happened to me the next cartridge slammed into the stuck section and jammed a little into it......enough to come out with the loaded cartridge when I extracted it.

Exmarine, next time you need a tool like this check with Midway. They have good prices and their shipping is at actual cost.You get a better deal if you have a C&R License. Last time I ordered from CDNN they had a 9.95 minimum shipping. [marines]
