False Muzzle
  • An attachment made for the muzzle of an individual rifle barrel in the interest of extreme accuracy. The bullet is loaded through the false muzzle, which begins to swage grooves into the projectile exactly in line with the rifle's bore, and is then ramrodded fully to the breech. Then, the rifle (which can be either breech or muzzle loading) is set up to fire a mechanical bullet, precisely pre-rifled to fit that particular bore. Often used in conjunction with a bullet starter.
