Like other cursed missile weapons or launchers, cursed bolts occasionally "slip from your hand" when you throw or fire them, and end up on the ground.
Like arrows and darts, crossbow bolts are liable to break when fired or thrown. This destroys the item, with no message. The bolt simply disappears. This chance of breaking is minimized by the item's enchantment and your Luck. Compare this with daggers, which cannot break when thrown.
Projectiles have a probability of disappearing after use. For uncursed projectiles, this depends on the net enchantment and erosion of the item. +0 projectiles have 2/3 probability of disappearing, +1 have 1/3 probability, and +2 or greater reduces the chance of breaking to 1/4 probability.
Blessed projectiles have an additional probability of being saved, which is dependent on luck, as follows:
Luck prob of save 0 - 2 .25 3 - 5 .49 6 - 8 .74 9 - 12 .98
