    How long should one leave a dud round in the chamber?

    It been awhile since I've shot. A long while

    I can't remember how long it is recommended by the mfg of ammo to leave a dud in the chamber before removing it.

    So how long should a round be left in the gun to cool down?

    Thanks

    I would think 10 minutes should be adequate. What type gun is the dud in?

    On page #11, Item #15, of their current Instruction Manual, Glock recommends to wait for 30 seconds - with the muzzle pointed in a safe direction - before attempting to clear a defective round.

    The longest waiting period I know of is three full minutes. (Which I, personally, believe to be more than adequate.)

    Endless the times are different for centerfire and Rimfire, I wonder why such a big difference in the times to wait?

    It seems expect type of primer difference, they should be the same reguardless of caliber. 22 or 50 cal. No?
