    A lot of mishaps can and will happen during a shooting session. Most of the time shooting sessions go off without a hitch or nits.....When an incident like this happens, one can not exercise and implement the up most caution and safety...BTW what caused the round to stick in your rifle 9mmlargo?

    ....Good video BigChief, I learned something..thanks!!

    I gotta say in all my 20 years in the Army I saw very few malfunctions with M-16s, usually nothing that couldn't be fixed with tapping the forward assist, going through the clearing drill or reinserting the magazine. Occasionally a bad lot of ammo (rare) or a dinged up round that shouldn't have been loaded into a mag anyway.

    I guess that says something about the AR platform when the rifles are maintained properly. And I'm here to tell ya, a soldier can break things that are "GI Proof" in ways you never dreamed of could ever happen.

    I've seen a few pilots who could break a B-52, and those things are tougher than a 2-dollar steak!

    This procedure is in the owners manual. I have done this maybe 6 times and never had any issues...
    Or one could run around town with a loaded rifle

    Well he could just take out the Magazine or unload the magazine if it's loaded and take it to a safe area and shoot it ( I say remove or unload the magazine so it doesn't shoot and chamber another round in a crudded up chamber. Then if the case was still stuck, it would be safe to put a rod down the barrel and drive it out. However, do try the above methods first. It will most likely fall out. Then clean that dude good with a wire brush in the chamber. It's either steel cases or a cruddy chamber.

    Glad I don't live anywhere. Driving with a loaded gun illegal?!

    Yep...legal here in Wyoming. I do it all the time. Not with one up the pipe though, doesn't apply to my CC gun however.

    Simple, if he could remove the bolt it wouldn't be stuck, and you can't remove the FP without removing the bolt

    Once you remove the lower, further disassembly should be possible, if not, the barrel can be removed, I have never seen a case where it was so impossible to clear an M-16 or AR-15 without more than a modest amount of work, done safely of course.

    My Rock River LAR8 has a stuck unfired 308 shell chambered. Pulling the charging handle is no help, it is really stuck. What is the safest way to remove the round?

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
    The rifle was not in full battery so could not fire the round.
    Tried the rope, oil trick but it did not work. Ended up using a rubber mallet on the charge handle and it worked. Figured I could always get a new charger handle. The chamber was clean with no fowling. I had fired 20 rounds of good ammo with no problems then switched to a cheap brand. The first one out of the box was the one that jammed. I will stick with the good stuff from now on.
    Some of the posts cautioned about having a loaded rifle in the car. I live in a “free” state and there is no law against having a loaded rifle in the car. I agree it is not safe but not illegal here. We can even carry concealed without a permit. It is also illegal for any city to have gun laws, only the state can pass gun laws.

    I don't remember seeing you here, but Welcome to the Forum. Stick around and enjoy the madness. Wait! Yes I remember you now. Anyhow good post and interesting and educational subject, and congratulations on living on the free world.

    You are allowed to post what type of cheap ammo it was. Wolf or similar?

    Glad it all worked out for you. Safely!
