This can happen if the pull weight has been adjusted too light
If it is the pull weight adjustment turn the rifle upside down and close the bolt it will let the firing pin fall every time even if bolt is closed slowly
So what exactly was the point you were making?
I really don’t get this ”Don’t need x,y and z for normal stalking distances” because I have witnessed, as I am sure others have, more than one deer that was unfortunately wounded at a “normal stalking distance” that has made off only to pause, mill...
What about someone who doesn’t just stalk deer?
They may shoot long range vermin and just want to use one set of binoculars for everything.
Surely you wouldn’t suggest it was sensible that they have two sets of bino’s just because they don’t need the rangefinder ones for normal stalking ranges
