Default Winchester model 94 30-30

So went out shooting for the first time yesterday had a ball with a couple 9mm, little 22, moss500, and the Winchester. Anyway, went through the first box of 30-30 and moved on to the second and, without paying attention, started loading. Turns out the seconds box was 243, and like a dill hole when I let the clerk who sold them to me, I just went ahead and shot the ****. The first fired, the second jammed and I can't get it out.

Any suggestions or similar experiences...?

This one is stuck in the magazine chamber, it won't even feed to the hole. I'm thinking that if I can tear it apart and remove the mag I can then use pliers with lube to pull it through.

In addition to your present troubles, you may want to be aware of loading pointy ammo into a tube magazine. 30-30 come in blunt tip for use in Win. 94's and the like.

Then again its probably not the best way to go about it, but i'm at my wits end here. The thing won't budge. I was really hoping to get it chamfered and to the loaded position, from there it would've been easy to get it out, but being stuck between has really limited my options with safe removal.

I think you mistake what was said. I didnt knowingly shoot 243 from it, i shot without paying attention to what the box said the ammo was. I trusted the clerk to hand me the right box, it being from the same cubby as the other box I bought, which was 3030. So while an hinest mistake, still a boneheaded one. I shouod have checked the bixes before I left the store, and especially before I loaded and shot it. Oh, and just found out I sisnt shoot one afterall. I found the missing round just now. So it never even chambered a 243.

Yes u need to always check make sure right. Always shoot the proper ammo for the caliber u are shootin or a serious very bad judgement call may end yer life. An be damn careful tryin to pry live ammo out thats not even a smart choice go to a gun shop have a smith help before u kill yer damn self. An when u are done re take or take a hunter safety course
