The change in POI was due to flexing (bending) a very light weight barrel by pulling on it externally.

As far as rate of twist, in my opinion, you have a good one for most uses.

1/9" twist: will stabilize bullets ranging in weight from 40 grains to 75 grains. And yes, it is actually the LENGTH of a bullet, and not the weight- but heavier bullets are usually longer, so it works out.

For hunting, would find the heaviest bullet your rifle shoots well, zero with that bullet, and don't look back.

And as far as the bucket list, there for a while thought I was about to close out the list, and no, it was NOT fun. But it does allow you to shoot UNDER a banking aircraft at people that are on the other side of the aircraft.

If you have something like a quick adjust 2 point, something similar to what Blue Force Gear sells, then yes. You can use the adjustment tab to cinch the sling tight for firing the weapon and pinning it in place when you're not using it. Wrapping your arm in the sling also helps and doesn't require anything more than a carrying strap. That said, I find that the quick adjust 2 point slings work best. YMMV.

With respect to the AR, don't cinch the sling too tight or you can induce inaccuracy. If the barrel has been floated because you have a float tube or monolithic upper, this is less of a concern.
