    The odd numbered rifling and shape,in theory should out perform the even numbered or/and
    standard shape but I personally have never seen any difference between the 3,4,5,6 and 8 grove rifling except in break in and clean up.

    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.

    +1 on J.E., the quality of the bbl makes the difference.

    good bbl's shoot well, no mater what the rifling.
