    That was my first exposure to a stuck pullthrough...we had lots of reservists to give lots of bad info to recruits when I started.

Since we were in the field, he managed to hammer a blank in after it and fired it out...towards the front of the defensive position. He was a full Sargent... Rifle survived...

    The only jamming incident I have seen, that led to a catastrophic failure was a chap in my rifle club many years ago, who had accidentally jammed a Jag and cloth in the barrel of his .22 bolt target rifle and forgotten about it, (can't remember the make), first round stopped behind it, second round sheared the bolt and made one almighty bang, he escaped serious injury, but it wrecked the rifle.

    I remember running out to the firing points of our underground range after the 'boom', the poor chap was wondering about in shock, rifle still in hand, with blast marks on his face and the smell of burnt hair hanging in the air.

    Respect for the humble .22lr round firmly imprinted on my young mind.

    Don't know, it would have gone through normal inspection after the course or at least during annual...(ATI)...I later broke the ejector as I recall so there's a chance at course end to sort it. It was right at the course end too...
