Are you stripping the cartridge out of the magazine and letting the action go to battery under its own force?

Is the extractor actually riding over the cartridge rim and grabbing it?

If you are riding the op rod handle home on the cartridge it may not have sufficient momentum

to overcome the resistance of the spring behind the extractor claw and the spring-loaded ejector on the bolt face

how are you doing this manual cycling?

Try to cycle the action quick, pull the op rod back and release it so it gets full momentum going into battery. When you extract a round, pull back quick and smooth.

As for the currently stuck round, lock the bolt open and carefully tap the round out using a cleaning rod. The rim may be mauled now so it won't extract.
