faulty round disposal?

Random question that I never really gave much thought to, as I have never had a misfire. But if you have a misfire and you eject the faulty round, what is the proper way to dispose of it at the range?

throw it downrange really far. well, thats what i do if im in the desert.
i dont know about a brick n mortat type range, your best bet is to let a rangemaster handle it. Actually i just remembered this happened to me about a year ago, the range master wasnt nearby, i had an FTF, dented primer. The gun wasnt hot so i just reloaded it and tried again, no bang, left the pistol pointed downrange for 5 min while i shot another gun, after i realized it wasnt going to spontaneously combust i just tossed it in the trash.

Yeah, most of those sound like pretty bad ideas!

I'll clear it from my gun and let it sit (away from anyone). Once my session is over I toss it downrange.

just tuck it into your pocket...lol

Depending on the gun I will ether cock it again and try a second time, and if its still no go I will set gun down facing down range and do something else for a bit...if it still doesn't go off I will unload it and toss it down range...

With the FTF I had last weekend I rechambered the round and it fired on that try.

We had a misfire at the inddor shooting range, ejected it, and gave it to the range manager. Sorry, but I don't know what he does with them. Why don't you get on the website with the mfg and ask them what they recommend? If you have too many from this mfg, you bet they'd be hearing from me!

If you have a failure to fire you should keep the gun pointed downrange for at least 30 seconds, and then eject it. Once it is out of the gun, and no barrel or chamber to create pressure, a bullet really isn't going to do much of anything in the way of damage if the primer were to finally go off.

The last time I went to the range I was at the counter getting my targets. A guy came out with a round that failed to fire, the employee tossed it in a drawer full of them.

When I have a primer dented but no bang I just let it sit for 30 sec or so and then I try again. If no go I give the round to the guy at the desk as I am leaving and they pull the bullet and save the parts.
