Steel cased ammo jammed in my upper and in the barrel, barely sticking out, tried pushing it out with a cleaning rod but no luck so far, any other ideas?

Thanks!

Cleaning rod then whack the end with a rubber mallet...it will come out brother...just a good whack!

Lol - yep. That's why gunsmiths never let you see them work on your gun

Yep, it's not like it's welded in there, just use your big boy muscles! :p

how many rounds of steel have you shot through it without cleaning it?

with herters ammo my AR locked up after 60 rounds. run some brass every 10 rounds and that will clean out the chamber.

How would running brass clean the chamber exactly? I always thought that the main problem with steel cases is that they don't expand as much as brass ones do, resulting in carbon building up where it shouldn't. At least until it gets to the point where a casing eventually ends binding to the chamber walls.

I have shot nothing but Tulammo out of my m&P and never had one get stuck.
