    • There's no rifling in the barrel, and you call it a rifle?
    • I would have bet that the conventional rifling of the Douglas barrel would have been more accurate.
    • In their six grooves, Colerain barrels feature round bottom rifling that holds less fowling; square bottomed grooves reportedly retain more fowling.
    • The barrel can be rifled and this rifling causes the projectile to spin, increasing its accuracy.
    • S & Ws gain-twist rifling should help conventionally constructed bullets, and reduce throat wear.
    • The rifling of the barrel is polygonal with a 1: 19 twist.
    • Because of its greater technological complexity and problems of scale, it took longer for the advantages of rifling, then breech-loading, and then rapid firing to be applied to artillery.
    • There is some conventional wisdom that says, for varmint rifles, simply seat the bullet to touch the rifling.
    • To rectify the problem, the Enfield form of rifling based on five grooves and lands is introduced, so the last of the British military Martinis are called Martini-Enfields.
    • All guns still have the mirror-smooth polygonal rifling that produces such fine accuracy with jacketed bullets.
    • This is interesting as this type of rifling generally yields poor results with cast lead-alloy bullets unless they are gas-checked or very hard.
    • Its rifling was so shallow it wouldn't accurately shoot lead alloy bullets, although I must admit it would shoot jacketed ones OK.
    • Another method of barrel rifling is rotary-hammer forging.
    • With the Stoney Point tool we determined it would be impossible to seat these short 40 gr. bullets anywhere near the rifling in either rifle.
    • The new tapering projectiles could be directed with greater accuracy when rifling was introduced in artillery barrels.
    • All were loaded with the bullet seated .010-inch off the rifling, in Winchester cases with CCI large rifle magnum primers.
    • The Foster slugs have very shallow rifling and since these slugs obturate in shotgun bores, most of these grooves are ironed out in the process.
    • The foremost portion of this auxiliary chamber incorporates many small rifling grooves to just stabilize the bullet before it engages the bore.
    • One type is a round chrome moly steel liner that is button rifled to produce an ultra-smooth bore with uniform rifling.
    • Inspection of the bore revealed the near absence of rifling.
