We provide a proof that when there is no forcing the recently introduced projective dynamics Monte Carlo algorithm gives the exact lifetime of the metastable state, within statistical uncertainties. We also show numerical evidence illustrating that for slow forcing the approach to the zero-forcing limit is rather rapid. The model studied numerically is the 3-dimensional 3-state Potts ferromagnet.
