I was messin around with my dad's over and under earlier went I broke it open powder flew out and it wouldn't go back together good . The whole time I was workin on it powder kept comin out so I looked down the barrels and couldn't see light . I shined a flashlight down there the wad was in stuck in both barrels . The chokes are full and the last shots ran through it was low brass Rems . So I don't know why it wouldn't shuck the wad out .

Use a wooden dowel 1/2 inch or bigger and work from the breech end to get the wadding out. Use compressed air to blow out any powder residue (sounds like enough of the powder didn't burn to force out the wadding and remained in the chambers) Take the gun apart (forearm off, barrels out of the action, and blow it out completely). Clean the barrels as you would normally, then get the light right and look down the outside of the barrels to make sure they weren't bulged by a charge of shot hitting a stuck wadding.

Throw away the rest of the shells from that box.

Hope this helps.
