If, at any time you decide not to fire the rifle after having prepared to take a shot, the following procedure must be followed:
1. Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction; finger off the trigger.
2. Immediately put the safety into the "ON" position.
4. Pull the bolt rearward, ejecting the cartridge in the chamber. Inspect the chamber to ensure that the cartridge has been extracted. Only close visual inspection of the chamber can determine that no cartridge is left in the chamber of the rifle.
