    30 cal SS brush...push it in through the chamber...but only half way...then pull back...see if that will break it free.

    put a drop of Kroil at the piece of brass and let it sit. sometimes that will loosen up any carbon that is holding it.

    Maybe try an 8mm (.323) bore brush. That's what I normally clean with, I always thought the .30 brushes were too small. If that doesn't work, check the surplus and maybe Brownells for a broken shell extractor. The Russians used to issue them with Mosin-Nagant rifles.

    The bore brush trick is a good one.

    I usually have a separated case extractor for each of my milsurp chamberings.

    *knock on wood* - haven't had to use one....yet.

    Bore brush worked well for 300 Savage casings that split about an inch up from the head.

    I just got a set of dental picks made of brass, they would work perfectly for this situation. Made by Hoppe's I think, look for them on the web.

    If all else fails crank a fine thread tap into the case neck. Not too tight as to further wedge it into the throat. Knock it out with a non marring rod from the muzzle.
