The odd numbered rifling and shape,in theory should out perform the even numbered or/and

What I have seen is a huge difference in the quality of different barrels that can greatly
effect the accuracy and overall performance.
There are supposed ed advantages in certain uses for each type of rifling and there are
believers that one is better than others.
A lot depends on the quality of the barrel and the Smithing as to how accurate the rifle is
and if these things are at there best the number of rifling or design has very little if any
effect on accuracy.
It's like the debate between cut rifling and buttoned rifling there is no definitive answer.
But if you want one , get it.
