In Dwarf Fortress, once my marksdwarves have fired off all of their bolts, is there a way to get them to reload?

    Do you have bolts in an ammo stockpile? Have you assigned your squad to use those bolts via the military screen? Dec 4, 2010 at 17:17

If you'd prefer your marksdwarves to reload instead of going into melee combat, you can go the military menu, view their squad, and then toggle c to tell them to stay close to their station. This will cause them to go and collect bolts, then start shooting again.
