Indeed a mystery how he removed the bolt. And, what caused the bullet to jamb. I did not observe the bolt extraction or inttial effort to remove the case/bullet. But when he used the steel rod, it took a couple of pretty solid raps with a hammer. The freed cartridge had the bullet jambed back into the case at least 1/4" so I assume there must have been some friction between the case and chamber wall as well. Strange stuff, but of course one really never knows how the reloading process was conducted... only that bad stuff happened with a reversed primer!
