On occasions, there can be a delay in igniting the primer, so wait at least 20 seconds before opening the bolt and ejecting the cartridge.

The best course of action would be to reinsert it and fire again as a sighter; if it still doesn't fire, please seek advice from your local RFD.Always keep the rifle pointing downrange in a safe direction.

You must always dispose of the round safely, by properly pulling the bullet out and emptying the case.

Fire the empty case in an old rifle to detonate the primer.

why do misfires happens?

The primer fails to ignite, thus failing to ignite the propellant. This can happen due to poor rifle strike (damaged firing pin and/or weak firing pin spring).
