But, did not the plastic (or, other material) tip make the bullet longer? That is the issue on a .22 Cal. bullet, increasing the length by a mere 0.060" dictates a 1.0" faster twist rate!:eek:;) Read...

I own several, and agree with L.Sherm - they are an excellent hunting optic:
my sole criticism is the 1/3rd MOA (0.1Mil) clicks - I'd prefer finer. However, for game coyote sized and up, they are...

For carbon, the SLIP 2000 works by submersion, or, plugging the muzzle and standing the rifle upright over-night. Wet patching with this product is ineffective. Via "submersion", it has proven very...
