Default Electrican's tape uses

I don't know if anyone else on the board does this but I always place a piece of electrical tape over the muzzle of my rifle. I shoot right through the tape. I know the Marine snipers also do this and figure it works for them. I too carry some tape so after I shoot and prior to heading back out I can again cover the muzzle with tape prior to dragging the deer out. I haven't checked it but it may effect the shot slightly. Not having to ever worry about something getting into the barrel is worth it.

I do this all the time in bad weather. You can buy little condom-type muzzle covers for this. Never checked how they effect bullet flight at the range, but killed every deer or elk I ever used them on. (Although it's a little hard getting a condom on a deer or elk!)

I read an article on this where a guy did a lot of testing and basiclly there was no difference overall in accuracy. he even had one rifle that shot significantly better with the tape on.

hahaha fingre cots?
i don't do the tape thing but saw/read/heard the air removes the tape before the bullet reaches the muzzle, so its not suppose to effect the bullet.

I have a feeling you get a little farther away from the truck than most of us Onehorse.
