Ruger .30 Carbine problem

What's the cure for fired cases sticking in the chambers of a New Model Black Hawk chambered in .30 Carbine ? Extraction is EXTREMELY difficult. I'm firing 110 gr, FMJ, MilSurp ammo. These cases are allegedly thicker and less prone to expansion than commercial ammo. Thanks for the help..............one eye joe

A simple polishing didn't do it. What's the trick ? So far, I haven't rec'd even ONE response. With all of the experts and old hands on this Forum, I'm disappointed.......

Well Joe...Here in North Louisiana First thing We would do is change Ammo...If that don't work , go thru the list of the usual culepurs that cause presures high enough to expand cases to the point of diffecult extraction....Do the primers show any excessive presure indicators , That would be the first clue i'd look at

Never saw the post, my apologies sir.

After much deliberation and cogitation, the only answer I can give is SELL THE BEAST AND PURCHASE A REAL HANDGUN IN A MANLY CALIBER!

OMG ! ! ! Wild Bill, is it really you ? ? SOOO glad you're alive and well and back among us ! ! I hear ya Bill, regarding different ammo. My problem is that I can no longer shoot rifles (I have lost all vision in my rt eye & most of my strength, movement, and dexterity on the rt side of my body--effects of exposure to AO). I sold my M-1 Carbine, but I have a stockpile of Milsurp ammo to shoot. I can still shoot handguns lefty, so I purchased this Ruger to shoot that ammo. I have tried selling ammo via internet, but the exorbitant shipping costs are a deal breaker for BOTH buyer and seller. Sarge, I figured that you never saw this post, because I know you respond to questions and would certainly try to help me out if you could. The primers appear to be "normal" to me. I may just sell this one as you suggest Sarge, and look for another that I can run this ammo through. Thanks for responding, guys......PS, I thought shootin' a rifle cartridge from a handgun would be manly, even if it is a sissy rifle cartridge. Thanks for settin' me straight Sarge.

Check for rough chambers. Might need a strong light and a magnifying glass. It doesn't take a deep toolmark to cause a high-pressure round like the .30 Carbine to latch into it.

Ran into that same deal with a .357 Blackhawk once, and it turned out to be roughness in a couple of the chambers. A few passes with a Dremel and a buffing mop with some 5 Micron lap set things right.

The other problem with a .30 Carbine revolver is that about 50 rounds into a session, I gotta go take a handful of Excedrin for the headache it gives me. I sold the only one I ever owned for that very reason. Just no joy...

Thanks for the input, JohnnyT. You are correct about the blast, but I kinda enjoy it. It lights up a dark indoor range port for sure. I'm amazed at how well the SA grip nullifys felt recoil. The revolver seems to just roll upward in the hand, w/o punishing the web. This is the 1st SA revolver that I have ever owned or shot. I'm gonna take a better peek into the chambers, but I'm having the same problem with all 6 of them.........

Now you all know I'm not the sharpest knife in the box when it comes to smithin, but I remember a long time ago I had a Ruger 45LC that had sticky extraction because I pushed some loads way to hot and somehow bent the extractor/star just enough to make it difficult.
