XD9 problem

Hi all, Was making up some dummy rounds for a new weight bullet load. The last one I tried will not eject from the gun. The slide will only go back about a 1/2". The barrel just starts to drop and I can see what I guess is the rim of the case. I think my OAL was way under and the extractor is not catching the groove or ????. Any ideas how to get the slide back to eject this dummy round. Thanks:

Hi all, Solved the problem. Googled "stuck round in xd9". Page with pictures came up. They however were dealing with a live round. Just hold front of rear sight against hard edge, engage grip safety and push hard. after a couple of trys slide came back and stuck round ejected. Only damage was to some skin on my thumb. Well as BO says "life is hard"!!!!! Shoot straight and stay safe............
