    How did you polish the chamber?

    I wrapped a few patches around a 9mm brass barrel brush, with some Flitz type polish, screwed it on a piece of threaded rifle rod and inserted in drill ZIP

    The force of the extractor tore the aluminum case in half leaving part of the casing in the chamber, sqibbed, pufe!
