Electic tape your muzzle?

I am thinking about using the method of electical taping the muzzle of your rifle to keep moisture out this year. Every year I mean to try this while shooting but never remembered to put electical tape in my truck before going out.

Has anyone ever actually tested it on the range to make sure it doesn' t affect your point of impact?

I haven't tested it, but it shouldn't. The muzzle blast (or at least air compressed in front of the bullet) should blow it clear before the bullet arrives.

Won't hurt it, do it every year. Wrap some around your barrel and you'll have it when you need it.

Yea, the air in the barrel in front of the bullet will blow it off long before the bullet gets there.
