 I am having a problem with a Ross Cadet that I recently acquired. Spent casings are very difficult to extract from the chamber. I have quite aggressively cleaned the rifle bore and the chamber with a brass brush and Hoppe’s 9 bore cleaner but have not seen much if any improvement. The bore has some pitting, evidence of past neglect but the gun is an accurate shooter. I was wondering if anyone has encountered and fixed this issue before?

I'm afraid I can't provide much information as it's not an issue I've had with my cadet. Is the issue ammunition-specific, or does the problem occur with different brands of ammunition?

I have had a chance to further test the gun with different types of .22 ammunition. The difficult/stiff extraction occurs with all the .22LR ammunition I have tried but .22short cycles with ease.

Short chamber perhaps?

The Cadet chamber size is an interesting question. There is no markings on my Cadet specifying chamber size, not even an indication of .22 caliber. Can the 'Cadet experts' confirm that these guns were all chambered for .22LR?
