I can't believe this: bullet stuck in barrel

Somehow no powder was dropped into a case. I know that ultimately it is my fault for expecting rather than inspecting, but I either missed the powder dropping step, or the Lee auto disk missed a charge.
Anyway, what is the best way to remove the bullet? I thought about getting a dowel rod and pushing it in the direction of travel as not to reverse the bullet against the rifling. This sound good?

If you don't mind being where you are, you are not lost.

This (squib round) has happened to me 3 times in the last 18 months all with comercial ammo. The last 2 times in one week were with CCI Blazer .45 230 FMJ and my 625 S&W. The first was with PMC 230 FMJ in my USGI government model. It is not just handloads. No more CCI for me.

Everyone needs to be alert to this possibility all the time. At this rate I might be better loading my own!
