Looks like the consensus is to slam it shut.  Makes sense, but it goes against my philosophies to pull into a silent hunting spot, quietly get ready, ease the truck doors shut, then slam the bolt shut.

Thanks for replies.

It can be done quietly.

Release it slowly and then push the bolt carrier indent with your thumb.

Practice when at the range so you know where it needs to be. I can do it every time.

It's honestly a good skill to have for predator hunting in case you get a bad round

If you "drove" into the hunting spot, they already heard the truck.  Slamming one home at the vehicle isn't going to give you away anymore after that.

I built a side charging "MSR" AR so its very easy to chamber around quietly, although 99.9% of the time I don't worry about it

Anyone know a quiet way to chamber a round in an AR style rifle?
Yes,Turn it into a bolt action with a 24 in. barrel in 6,5 cm  :chuckle: :tup:

What I've told hundreds of students over the past 25 years.

Don't ride it like you own it, drive it like you stole it.

Pop the rear takedown pin and pivot the upper for bolt carrier access. Slide the carrier assembly back and hand feed a single round in the chamber. Gently and quietly send the carrier forward with your thumb until the bolt locks positively around the cartridge and the carrier is flush with the rear of the upper. Pivot the upper back down into the lower and send the take down pin back home. Just about as easy as loading a single shot break action.  :twocents:

Lots of good advice here.
If it was me I would just slam it home.
If your trying to be Super quiet always use your forward assist .Make sure it goes home.Dont want to fire one out of battery.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
