I have had that problem before, in my case it was oversized brass cases that caused the problem. I also have a Bushmaster. I usually take my BRASS cleaning rod and tap it with a large screwdriver handle using as little force as possible to knock the case out of battery, that is assuming the cartridge has already fired. Remember Safety first!
