When you get out of the truck, or even after you get to your stand...
Remove one round from the mag BY HAND
Insert the round in the chamber BY HAND
Ease the bolt forward until it stops on the case.
Finish seating the round in the chamber with the forward assist.
When it's fully seated...insert your mag and you're ready to roll.
I don't always clean my barrel between hunting trips, because it usually doesn't need it.
I ALWAYS clean my bolt, carrier and barrel extension, so that I never have issues quietly chambering a round.
