During the 600 yard slow fire prone stage I will usually:
1. Fire the shot.
2. When target comes down, I'll record the previous shot score and location on my data sheet.
3. I will then take a round and put it in the ejection port and let it sit loose over the SLED/magazine.
4. I'll look down range until the target comes up.
5. When target comes up I'll look through my spotting scope, check shot location and score, note the mirage (make a wind adjustment if necessary) and then roll into my stock.
6. When I'm stocked, I'll start the round into the chamber with my finger and then drop the bolt by pressing the bolt catch lever.
7. Then I'll take my shot in about 10 seconds.
This usually minimizes the amount of time the round is baking in the chamber.
BTW: This is with an AR.
