Yeh thanks! I discovered it is no big deal. I put the factory rod out of the 36 in the 30 snd it stuck out in it as well, so as I said, "just the nature of the little beast." All is well. I have fired almost 400 perfect and accurate rounds of ALL kinds and brands through it. It is holdin pretty small grops and getting tighter ones all the time. It is/will be fine.
