In the MKIII, I had to have one of the range officers hunt down a cleaning rod to get it out, all while everyone was waiting for the line to be called safe. Not cool.
I get the same problem sometimes with a mosin plus with soviet era amunition.
The thing of it is, it took a lot of work to get all that varnish looking Cosmoline, I had to use a steamer for the most part, but also, soviet ammo seems to have a thin layer of some kind of varnish, as the barrel heats up, it melts it and residue starts to accumulate, the Poof! a stuck case
This however worked for me:
Plus the help of a cooper brush to clean the chamber, it'll last for about 50 rounds before it happens again, My two cents.
