A successful bear hunt in Washington
By John McAdams

Outdoor Life

The tape, stuck over the muzzle, is used to keep precipitation and debris out of the rifle's bore. But many hunters argue that the protective layer throws off your bullet's impact point. Others say the flimsy barrier won't deflect the bullet. Which is it?
