Muzzlewrap - how do you protect your barrel?:
what do you guy´s use to keep snow, rain, crud, out of your rifle barrel ?
I know, first of all dont let the stuff get in there in the first place, carry the weapon muzzle down in the rain etc. but what do you use to cover it ?
Condom ? Tape ? just any plastic foil ?
and has anyone tested if it changes the cold barrel zero ???
The stuff should be blown away before the bullet gets there, but does it work ?
I use latex anti HIV Gloves, cut off the fingers and .... five muzzledoms !
Of course mine is bigger then yours because I have this here muzzlebrake on it.

I use Scotch tape, the "brittle(?)" one. I have no change of POI on my sniperrifle. I've had problems with condensation inside the barrel under changeing temperatures. On long patrols(hunts these days) I put a dry patch through the barrel each day and put a new wrap on.

with our G-3´s we unscrew the flash hider place a piece of
plastic bag over it and srew the thing back on.
protects the bore and doesnt look like a Cristopher day parade !
I remember the days when we were issued black platic muzzlecaps, and that we as DI´s used to pay for a case of beer when one of our pups send one down range!
I´ve also seen some of the foamy ear plugs as well as muzzleplug, but not really great for a schnipper, ehhh!
