I do bring it, the brass rods used for barrel cleaning also double as a ram rod for barrel intrusions.
By stuck case I mean that after the round was fired, the bullet casing became stuck in the chamber. The projectile had left the barrel, but its casing did not extract. It was stuck to the point that the extractor had shredded the cases rim off, and mantling the rifle (hitting buttstock on the ground with the bolt carrier locked back) did not work. Someone suggested using a tree branch, but I'm not about to have that possibly break off in the barrel and complicate the problem.
