The one method that I use when decocking my bolt action, I have remington model 700 chambered in 270, is this. When you move the bolt handle up and then slide the bolt back, which lets you see inside the gun, I then, pull the trigger and hold it. While I am holding the trigger back with one hand, I fully close the bolt and rotate the handle down. Then at the point I release the trigger. This allows you to de-cock it without dry firing the rifle. You can look on the back of the bolt and you will notice that the pin will not beprotruding out. It is in this position that I store my bolt action. Make sure there are no rounds in the rifle or at least in the chamber when trying this. I never have my rifles loaded when stored in my gun cabinet. I only have the ones for home defense and they are in a different location. Hope this helps.
