I might be tempted to grind the edge off the flutes on the sides and sleeve with heat shrink tube if thin enough. Might help to reduce the change for damage if the bit cocks slightly.

Maybe pour some liquid fabric softener down the barrel and let it soak. Liquid fabric softener is what wood workers used to bend wood into intricate patterns. After it soaks in, you might be able to push it out. If not, it might make drilling it out easier.

I think I got most of the wood out with a patch holder I bent to act as a shovel. But the brass rod still won't budge. Gonna have to throw in the towel & leave it to a professional.

I thought you only had wood stuck in there.

Good luck.

I think you peened it in place. Hopefully a good smith can remove the rod without damaging the bore.

That's going to have to be the plan. The parts of the barrel I can see still look good.

I was better of just trusting the "S" mark and taking my chances. Lesson learned.

Update:

Dropping off at gunsmith tomorrow. He's sure he can clear the barrel, hopefully no damage done.

Keep us updated. I check periodically to see if anything has transpired. It will be interesting to read what his method will be.

If I had known what would have happened, I would not have mailed you those 00 shotgun pellets.

Aren't we supposed to use dead soft, cast slug to do this? kz1000, get a 0 to 1.000" precision micrometer for measuring. Dial cals aren't going to give you the diameter accurately. Buy a mic.

You helped nonetheless, thank you.

Not doing it again. Sticking to field stripping from now on.

Update #1:

Gunsmith is @ 3 hours of labor & 1 broken bit.
1.5 inches of brass rod still in barrel. The longest bit he can get is still short, he's going to weld an extension to it Sunday and get the barrel clear. If no damage (He took rifle apart, barrel number matches) I'm good. If not, I'll buy another barrel & keep the original. It needs to be a shooter.

Hopefully final update:

Bore is clear. Only issue is halfway down the barrel there is a small ridge (No bulge). Not sure if it was there before I FUBAR'ed it. His recommendation is not to shoot it. I'm going run patches through it to see if they snag ,then do the old "Pull trigger with a 10' string" and hope for the best. He said a squib would be the worst case scenario.

How did he get it out? Continue to drill it?

If the patch doesn’t snag, and there’s no change in bore diameter, this makes no sense. The worst case scenario would be decreased accuracy which you wouldn’t expect to be match grade with an old pre-WW1 infantry rifle anyway.
