...stuck inside the chamber.
The bullet fired OK but now I got to try to figure out how to remove the front portion of the casing. Any suggestions much appreciated.
The gun in question is a Savage model 99 chambered in Savage 22 hi power. It's pretty much of an obsolete gun now but I still like to shoot it every few years. Near as my research tells me it was made in 1912. I have some reloads for it, but the shell I was using that broke was a factory load. I think this ammo was still available into the 1950's which means the ammo I was using was pretty old.
I believe the rifle is a takedown model, but if so it hasn't been apart in about 45 years.
Here's a couple of pictures of my dilemma.
