I guess I should not have bragged like this! I recently did have one stick in the barrel of my CZ Lux. CZ has a tighter barrel than any other 22 I've seen other than my Anschutz. When I pulled the trigger on this one I knew it didn't go anywhere because of the sound being much quieter than normal even. It stopped about 6 inches from the end of the barrel. I took out the bolt and tried pushing the lead out from behind but no dice! So, I put a rag in the chamber area, stood the gun on the stock, and poured a little Hoppe's # 9 and some CLP down the muzzle and left it for 2 days. I was then able to take a cleaning rod and push it right out from behind. To my surprise 2 bullets came out! So evidently the first one stuck but sounded normal, then the next one was really muffled because there was already a plug in the barrel!I have not had an issue with them sticking in the barrel yet. Hope I never do! I also have some CB shorts and CB longs, and you're right, they are a lot louder.
