    Heres my 44mag after I fired through electrical tape. As you can see it did not blow it off but rather cut through it. And this is just a square with very little wrapped around the edges20191109_124744.jpg

    I guess it's a bit more peace of mind but it really isn't necessary IMO. In 30 years of hunting big game with firearms individually, in small groups and large groups, neither I or anyone I know has ever used tape on their barrel and none of these people have ever had an issue because they didn't.

    Being aware of where your muzzle is will keep more stuff out of your barrel than tape.

    For me (and other Muzzle Loaders) It's an issue of moisture (water) getting into the barrel of a Black Powder rifle during inclement weather. You don't want to get your Powder wet "

    Center Fires...never considered it either.

    I'm usually more concerned with wetting the powder from getting condensation in the barrel from being in and out of a warm vehicle or camp than getting moisture down the barrel, but yeah it's definitely more of a concern with ML's.

    Interesting.

    Looks like a Ruger 77. VERY curious about the groups you get with that rifle.

    If its snowing/raining then yes I cover the barrel. Dollar store bag of balloons will last you a lifetime. You can even get them in orange, if you wish.

    It was a thought hiking in when hunting the big woods. Most guys would have their rifle on a sling, the muzzle pointed up. You always had dumps of snow off the trees walking in and there was a concern about filling the bore.
