    Need help with Ruger p345

    I screwed up! loaded some 45 rounds and used the barrel of my Sig 250 to check the depth of the rounds (225 gr. lead flat point). Fell right in no problem.

    Instead of removing the barrel on the Ruger p345, I just loaded the round to check. and the gun did not go fully in to battery (about 1/4" back), and locked up with a round in the chamber. Can't get the slide to move at all.

    Any suggestions???

    UPDATE:

    Put the front edge of the slide at the edge if my work bench, placed a piece of leather between the hammer and firing pin, and tapped the grip with a rubber mallet. It did the trick; all is well!

    Sounds maybe like the bullet is seated slightly high, and biting into the rifling. I did that once, with a batch. My brother's 1911 locked up as you described. My P90 ate 'em up.

    Hook the rear sight against a table edge, and push down hard on the grip.
