If the guns goes bang & you haven't told your shooting partners you were just firing the shot off into the ground for some reason then it's classed as a shot taken.
If there isn't a pellet in the rifle or you forget to close the bolt & the pellet is still in the barrel its' still a zero
You'd be amazed at the number of shooters who miss a target & then claim they forgot to load a pellet even though others heard it hitting a tree or something
