ĹWhen this happens for us it is at the range, i push the cocking handle up against the bench and lean against the butt of the FALO, a little leaning pressure and the spent case is ejected with no brute force. I have however found that often this is not needed (usually when firing prone and i can't be bothered to get up, old bones and all that!) Then i work the bolt as much as i can (maybe a 1cm or so, probably just the unlock distance) a few times and usually the case comes loose and extracts.

Firing German mil surplus with some corroded cases.

Cheers

Bob
