STICKING SHELLS (CAUSE)—I have a .22 short repeating rifle which sticks the shells after they have been shot. They seem to stick in the barrel so the extractor won’t pull them. If anyone can tell me how to fix it I would be very much obliged.
I think, perhaps, the extractor is worn rounded, so that the pull is not square, but slips. Possibly the chamber is fouled with lead or even with too thick grease. I am inclined to think, examination of the extractor will reveal the trouble, however. Possibly the chamber is worn and the shells “explode,” or stretch and stick.
