Re: keeping powder dry
I use a leather lock cover which I treat with mink oil or other repellent. If things get really wet out, I drape some kind of cloth or shammy overtop of my lock cover. Generally does the job. Oh, and i've taken a little duck tape and LOOSELY put over the end of the barrel. Like I said, LOOSELY, it's on enough to keep out the main water, but loose enough to blow off once shot. So far, so good and it's just as rewarding having your rifle go off at the end of a rainy/snowy day as it is shooting a deer. Always puts a smile on my face when she goes CHAAABOOOOOOOMM!!!!
