After shooting a round of my reloads and against my better judgement I reached for a box of Barnaul ammo that I had laying around and after the second shot the extractor came back empty..Now what? I already pushing a cleaning rod through to no avail..

describe 'no avail'. are you saying you can't push hard enough to remove it? or are you saying the bottom of the case has a hole in it so your rod goes all the way through?

Wooden dowel slightly smaller than your bore (hardwood, if availiable) and a hard rubber mallet. pound that sucker out. If the dowel goes completely through then, you've got issues you can't fix.

They make a case extractor tool for the m14 which is .308. Maybe you can find a surplus one for dirt cheap.

I smashed my carbon rod pounding on it, that sucker is really in there. The extractor tore part of the case head off.

I could be wrong here, but I'm thinking you really want to be using a METAL rod (aluminum, steel), NOT a carbon fiber rod. Or much better yet, use a wooden dowel rod.
