That's why I shot the 2013 worlds with the barrel wrapped in electrical tape

If you roll the sleeve along a very flat surface like a kitchen worktop you should be able to see the runout as part of it goes up and down.
I made sure it had a bit of sideways float, but really 2 mm of carbon walling that slipped on easily,influencing 14mm (minus bore)o quality hardened steel , I do find that hard to believe , but hey ho , I, m up for comments
