for some reason a round was loaded into chamber and i cant seem to get it out. I tried whatever i could and cant. Is there a way to safely take the round out without firing it?

What kind of shotgun?

All shotguns have a bolt or action release somewhere on the side of the receiver or on the trigger group that allows you to open the action without firing it.

Remington shotguns release is a small flat lever on the left side of the trigger group, just in front and above of the trigger. Press it up, and you can open the action.

There is a small switch at the left rear of the trigger guard. This is the action release.
Press and hold that switch and this should unlock the action, and allow you to open it.

In case you don't have one, here's a link to an online Winchester 1300 Owner's manual:


You can also get a hard copy direct from Winchester.

As dfariswheel stated, there is an action release lever/button on the weapon.

Push this button upwards into the receiver, hold it there, and pull back the slide.
