No, the leade is straight (no taper) from 2.0488 inch to 2.1388 then begins a taper to 2.3025 inch. This is from the SAAMI drawing here

Re: How come the barrel is this way?

No backwoods, it wasn't a set up for april fools. I simply wanted to know why. I am not new to guns, I have always been able to shoot good. Even in the military. I am now paying more attention to function instead of my being able to make a gun function. I am doing all my shooting by myself now and paying more attention to getting as accurate as possible.

If the rifling stops before the end of the barrel, the bullets would be shreaded.

If I'm not mistaken, this was an actual problem that Savage had with a few early model 12's that didn't get rifled properly. People had to send their rifles back to get rebarrelled.

For some reason, the millitary glosses over a few details when training some of our people. I knew a Marine that thought that the M16 223 was more leathal because the bullets tumble in flight. (i.e. intentionally designed to do so)

I hear what you are saying they try to make it simple to get more people through. I can tell you though that the some marines are teaching the 5.56 nato is out of Concentric on purpose to make it tumble on impact. I have heard it somewhere down the line when in the marines and my wife tried to tell me the same because they told her that at the rifle range. I would have to say this is wrong simply for the fact they use the same round for Designated Marksmen in the squads.

As for the question its not a bad one, If you don't understand just ask we all had to do the same but forget sometimes that we also had to learn.
