A dry reload is required when the magazine in the weapon has been emptied and the bolt has locked to the rear. To perform a dry reload—
l Press the magazine release button. l Remove the empty magazine and retain it on your person when time permits. l Fully insert a filled magazine into the magazine well and tug downward on the magazine to ensure it is properly seated. l Depress the bolt catch to allow the bolt carrier to move forward and observe the round being chambered. This places the rifle in Condition 1.
