i got a savage bolt in .270 and rem 597 semi .22 and was wondering what's the best thing to do if i pull the trigger and the round doesn't fire. they didn't really cover it that much in the manuals :uhoh:

Typically, you keep it pointed in a safe direction for at least 10 seconds then cycle the action... hopefully in such a manner that allows a repeat attempt on the round in question. That's what I was taught anyway. Truthfully, I'm the curious type and after two or three seconds, want to get a look at the round to try and see what might have happened.

But safety first. ALWAYS! :)

I've noticed with my 597 that if you slowly pull the bolt back, at about the halfway point, you'll hear or feel a "click". The round is still being held on the bolt, and you can then move the bolt back foward to re-chamber the round. You might have to use your finger to align it though. At this point, the hammer is recocked, and you can try firing the round again.

I just eject the round and carry on about my business.


if it's a hang fire, and makes it to the ground before it goes off, then you're good.

yeah, that's probably a better idea. With the price per round of .22LR ammo, it's not worth the time to fret over a round not going off. :)
