Some Mil-Surplus ammo both US and European ammo will have neck sealant and some will not,it's basically one of those thing you may run into on occasions. Not all ammo for same country of origin or same caliber will have it.

Reseating the bullet deeper before trying to pull it will break that seal and make pulling it much easier. The asphalt type sealant can be easily removed form both case and bullet with any solvent that will dissolve Tar. Make sure if you find yourself doing this to use proper protection to protect your hands from the solvent and do it in a well venerated area.

For the cases good old 100% acetone fingernail polish and a copper bore brush works just fine,if you don't want to use any chemicals just chuck the brush up in a cordless drill and ream it out. The bullets can be soaked in a can for a couple days to dissolve the solvent wash and tumbled to look like new if you choose to reuse them later.
