I've only ever had it happen a very, very few times and the broken case always came out real easy, just a push frpm the front with a tight bore brush was enough.
The other day, shooting some old brass I didn't know the history of, I had it happen. And it happened in a '94 Winchester so getting at it from the breach was going to be a problem. It was stuck too, the old tight bore brush thing didn't budge it.
I read about using cerrosafe, the low melting temp alloy used for making chamber casts. I happened to have some from another project so I fired up the hot plate and used it like you would cast a chamber, let it cool a few minutes and pushed the casting along with the broken case right out very easily.
This was a lot easier and safer for the gun than the easy outs and taps and such a lot of people tout for doing this. A small amount will last you forever since you can re-melt it and use it again. And it isn't really very expensive either. Hopefully you won't need it for this but it works.

Good to know that it can work. I always keep cerrosafe around for bore and chamber/throat size measurements.
