PostSubject: Ramrod Question   December 3rd 2013, 5:10 am

When I bought some Barnes T-EZ's they came with the correct screw in loading tip. My question is, will it hurt anything to shoot the gun with this tip screwed into my original ramrod tip since it extends past the end of the barrel?

I don't want to shoot and have the sabot catch the tip and take my ramrod with it...

If it's not obscuring the bore I can't see why you cannot use it like that .

I'm a little uncomfortable having the ramrod extend past the barrel, however, my brother carries his Accura V2 with the ramrod extended a couple inches past the end of the muzzle while hunting.  He's shot several deer with the ramrod in that position and doesn't worry about it at all.

Just for fun check out the movie Sgt. York with Gary Cooper.  There is a turkey shoot scene:

Like I said.... just for fun
