    Yep, I am stupid!  I accidentally loaded twice, then when trying to remove the magazine I pushed a 3rd one in  Geez.  What are my options here?

    Go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and get a wood dowel use dowel to force pellets out of barrel sometime you can blow it out with a blast of air using a

    buy more  than 1 dowel as they break easily. Dowel available in different diameters use the largest that fits in without binding.

    You will need to take a dowel or brass rod that fits in the barrel ,and tap out the pellets by entering in the the crown end of the barrel towards the breech. Not hard to do. Don’t ask how I know😜.

    hope this helps,

    Can you remove the mag as it is now? If so take it oiut, take the shroud off and try to shoot it out. Its always good to have something handy to clear this kind of jam but you might be able to clear it quickly. Otherwise, or if you don't already have one… get a dowel of the right size. I use my cleaning rod from the barrel end but other folks will disagree from with that.

    Yup, like others have said.  If you can remove the magazine, try to fire them out.  If that doesn't work then you'll need a dowel rod to tap them out.

    Yes, I did get the magazine out.  Does the shroud just unscrew off?  New pcp owner here…

    Thanks everyone – unscrewed the shroud and took it out and shot it at my target, best 3 shot grouping so far!  Afterwards I double checked the bore with my crown saver and it goes through from barrel to breech, so the barrel is all clear – phew!

    I've done the same thing (double not triple load), and usually either shooting it out or the vinyl covered rod or wooden dowel works fine.  Double loading is easy on most air rifles, even my Impact allows double loads.  Just consider it a right of passage as we've all done it.

    Been there done that. You don't need to remove the shroud just unscrew the end cap and remove the baffles and spring (you could damage them). Then just shoot them out. Pushing them back in you will rip the o-ring sometimes but if they don't shoot out like others have said get a wood dowel. You have a great air gun and there's a ton of mods for it and it's easy to work on.

    I double load on occasion and just shoot them out.  No shroud removal.  I'm sure at 20 yards it would double hit what I'm aiming at, at 35-40 yards the double pellets are noticeably low.

    Thanks for posting this Aimright. After reading the replies I don't feel nearly as dumb as when I put a three shot pattern in a new target with only one pull of the trigger. A little low but not really a bad pattern and NOT recommended. This is considered part of the learning curve I guess.

    LOL, that was second time I shot my gun, specifically pellet #42- #44 through my gun, still trying different pellets.   Thought it was best to walk the "range of shame" and own up to my mistake early to get some good expert advice here on ANG and not do something really stupid in the name of pride!    I appreciate you and the other folks that posted here that said they have gone through similar.  Out of this error I learned a couple of things – one that the shroud comes off very easy, and two that I need to standardize my loading process so that I always know my pellet status.

    One thing I do if I suspect I have already loaded a pellet is to very lightly pull back on the bolt (or side lever) just a tiny ways to see if there is hammer spring tension.  If it goes back easy there is already a pellet loaded.  If you feel the hammer spring tension then it hasn't been loaded.

    Caution!! I know a guy that ruined a barrel by getting the dowel firmly lodged in the bore. Tried everything to get it out without damage…all to no avail.
