Upon further examination…
I was wondering bout the snap cap lol. damn on a new case? what ammo brand and lot? yep its happened to me, a couple of times when i first started reloading and on occasion now.
the sell broke shell extractors. makes it a simple removal. problem being, they dont make one for 9mm. that ive found. I made my own, but its involved, but before that, depending on how bad the case is jammed,#1 I have used a tap 3/8 tap it into the brass case being careful, insert a bolt, then use a wooden dowel knock it out from the barrel end,
#2 stainless 7.62 bore brush if its not jammed in too hard twist the brush into the casing and pull. got about a 50/50 shot with that.
hone/polish the chamber after removal barrel is not broken in so its a tad tight probably.
The video shows Larry Potterfield using an oversized bore brush and forcing it into the cartridge. When I think of it now this was a box of commercial reloaded ammo I picked up a while back.
yep. that works. think its 308 brush for 9mm. on bad ones, usually over pressured loads,
i had to do the tap trick, but last one was on a 22/250 that he loaded way to hot.made it more of a pain in the but it was in a bolt action Remington 700. case puller i had then wouldn’t work on that chamber.space constraint.
lot of times with reloads, its someone that has used the case one time to many loading hot loads, and they got to thin…cases stretch.
not tellin you whats what, but i would break than ammo down to components. and reload it. checking the cases as i go.
i dont use anyone’s reloads. except my own.that way, if something happens its on me…
Some what related but about 15 years ago when I was still collecting a civilian Uncle Sugar pay check I was qualifying with my Glock 22 shooting factory fresh government issued 40 S&W Federal Hydro Shok ammo and I had a head case separation in the chamber. Did a New York reload and went for my back up gun. We had to send the barrel in to our service’s armory and they said the case looked to be a 9mm round in the box of 40s. WTH??? Never thought the factory could do something like that.
Tell me about the build.
Buffer weight/ length
It is very possible that an incorrect recoil balance caused this, blowback ar carbines and pistols need some pretty specific components to operate reliably.
Not enough ass and the BCG takes off way to soon/fast, before the pressure drops enough to extract reliably.
Something to consider.
I’ve built 3 blowbacks in the last year, touchie little buggers.
