I hope I'm posting this in the correct post. I have searched and cannot find an answer to this question but I know I'm not the first to have this problem.
I was shooting my Ruger SBH 44 magnum 7 1/2" barrel and shooting good I might add when I fired and noticed it was a very light pop sound. Instead of continuing to shoot. I decided to check things out. Glad I did and I hope everyone else does too. (Safety First!!!)
I removed the cylinder, then removed the three fired cases and three loaded cases. Everything was normal there. Then I checked my barrel for obstructions when I noticed the cast 240grn bullet was lodged/ stuck about half way down the barrel. (Man I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger again!!!!)
I got my brass hammer & rods (what are they called? brian dead here?) kit out. Man how can I forget the name of a tool that's so common. Used for removing pins. I put one in barrel and tried to gently bump/ push the bullet out but it wouldn't move so I decided to post this question on removing a stuck bullet before I accidently messed up the rifling or barrel on a perfectly great gun.
Please, anybody know a easy way to remove a stuck bullet from barrel???
P.S. I have no problem working on my own guns in case anyone is worried about giving advice. Plus the gun is unloaded with cylinder and loaded ammo put away so there is nothing to explode or dangerous unlesss I hit myself.
