Bullet weight and size have the most effect on the number of groves IMO.
The light fast bullets do very well with 3 or 4 grove barrels the mid range bullets/calibers
do well with 5 or 6 grove bullets. the heavy weight/large calibers are at there best in 8 grove
barrels because of the resistance of the big bullets to start rotating.
What round are you going to chamber it in and what bullet weight are you going to use ?
