To keep from breaking the ejector/extractor while you are experimenting, push the case out of the barrel with a cleaning rod if it doesn’t come out easily.

That has always worked for me, resize and test fit, it it still doesn't fit flush with the chamber face, adjust the sizing die down a tad and repeat until it does fit, pretty simple.

old scar sounds like you need a Wilson " case length headspace gage " to make sure the case is sized properly and the correct length.

dinny Rechamber it to .225 Win and I bet the problem will be solved. 😉

You could also try cleaning the ejector mechanism, replacing the spring and polishing those parts.

Thanks, Dinny

Ghosth If it was me I would be looking for what changed. Not the chamber.


Brass length could do it. Sizing die a turn or 2 from the right spot could do it.

True a carbon deposit in the chamber could also do it, but it should be obvious. IE black patch or ring.


Might be a good time to consider investing in a go/no go gauge for your reloads. Which might help diagnose the problem.


I do know if you are shooting bottleneck cases, lengths can creep. If the neck gets up past where the neck should be it can jam in there pretty good.


Find a case that does not stick and compare closely with one that does.


You can figure it out, be a bit methodical, take notes.

smithd1 +1 on cartridge if you reload or purchased reloaded ammo.

A lot of folks will run a patch down the barrel but never use bore solvent. A good soak and scrub should help.

Let us know the outcome.

spruce If it worked okay in the past and the chamber is clean I don't see why the chamber would need buffing. It didn't suddenly become rough.

SEK_22Hornet I assume you reload since you said unfired case not an unfired round - depending on the dies you use and the way you set them (if you partial resize or neck size only) cases may be slightly oversize - especially if it was fired in a different gun before being loaded for his one. Also have you checked the case length? If it has been fired a few times it may be too long and be extending beyond the chamber into the throat.
