Don't Single Load When You Sight-In a Rifle

by David E. Petzal

Regardless of action type, do not single-load it when you sight it in. Fill up its magazine and cycle cartridges through it just as you would when hunting or shooting zombies.

Work the safety. Work the magazine release. See that everything functions correctly, because not all new rifles are perfect, and the time to discover this is not during hunting season.
