Well, this morning I will fire off the MZ, one way or another...lol.

I have to pick the wife up at the memphis airport this afternoon, so if I don't get him this morning I'll fire it off and clean it when I get home.....I sure hate to waste a cap, powder and bullet, so here's to success this morning....!!!

I wonder if there is anyway to make a MZ that you can UNLOAD?

I guess with the bullet fitting so tightly in the barrel, it might be difficult to get out. I guess you could take the primer off, unscrew the breach and take the powder pellets out and push the bullet out ...????

Might be dangerous...huh???

oh well, just a thought....

This is what I have always done at the end of the season.

I never have, but then again, I started with a CVA Blazer and just got used to shooting the bullet out.....

I may try this.....someday..lol.

I did that...once. Too dang messy, even more so than cleaning one after being shot imo. I'd rather just use that last shot as a target shot to check my zero. \:\)

If I unload mine, I just take the breech plug out and do it that way. I often use mine during the rifle season.

I usually shoot to unload, just to make sure it would have gone off on a deer. This year, I shot 4 times opening morning and had to clean it then. To keep from having to clean the barrel again, I just pushed the pellets and bullet out the breech. All I had to do was brush out the breech and relube the plug threads. I know how I'm going to do it from now on.

Me too, it was even more messy since I use "loose" 777. It can be done but you always run the risk of getting powder into the action, safety etc.
BTW mine is a Remington 700.
I just shoot it out.

My Rem 700 will likely be using BH209 next year, so that will probably change my strategy for unloading/cleaning. ;\)

One of the essential tools that the Rem 700s came with is a tube that screws in after removing the breech plug. It's the same OD diameter as the bolt, about a foot long and about .70 ID. It allows for unloading, cleaning, etc without any possibility of getting anything in the trigger group. Do you not have this tube?
