Always tape my rifles after cleaning and while stored - keeps dusts out.

Always taped while hunting.

Always tape it when warm and dry. Don't want rust.

Another option. I cut off the fingers of black rubber (nitrile) gloves and use them to cover the muzzle, wrapping a piece of electrical tape around the base to adhere to the barrel. Hunting blacktails here on the Oregon coast, I'm often hunting in the rain and/or climbing steep (sometimes muddy) slopes and I find this method works best for me for keeping water and debris out. Get 5 uses out of one glove.

I was taught to always use tape on my muzzleloader barrel. I’ve seen muzzleloaders foul and not shoot due to hiking in heavy rain. We saw a bear and my gun fired, his did not.
I’ve not done this with any of my rifles
Not a bad idea for a rainy, snowy, muddy day. Cheap insurance

+1 for finger cots...my little rifle condoms. $2.99 for a billion of them on Amazon prime, no tape residue left on the barrel.

What size fits best for standard rilfe barrels? Same question for muzzleloaders.
