had one happen with winchester mod70 in 30-06 using off the shelf remington 180grn soft points. click-wait 2 min-reset the trigger without opening the bolt-click 3 more times in that cycle before the round finally went boom 30 seconds into the wait. good thing i had a grip on the stock so it didnt fall off the shooting table. scared the p@ss outta me. rest of the box no problem.

lots with cheap 22lr.

same here. first thing they teach us in military for small arms is tap rack bang it your weapon doesnt go off. never really considered a hang fire since i have been in. thanks for the reminder.
