It may have Rocksett. If that's the case it needs to be soaked in water to loosen.

I just had an issue with one that stripped. I wrote off the block and drilled it out. Used a larger drill bit and it finally let go. It will release before you hit the barrel if it's where the dimple is. If the barrel isn't dimpled you need to be careful as you will hit the barrel.
