Breech not wanting to open.

The case that stuck in the breech will tell the tale. Look very carefully at the fired case and look for any signs of a bright ring or line around the case just above the extractor groove. Look for any longitudinal scratches on the case body. Is the primer flattened? Is there a sharp ring around the case mouth or shoulder? If it's a 35 Rem. some of the late 70s-80s production rifles had slightly short chambers. Did you try different ammo?
