What Is Rifling Of A Gun?
The rifling of a gun refers to the spiral grooves found
inside the barrel of a gun. The grooves are designed to impart a
rapid spin to the bullet or projectile as it passes through the
barrel. The spin of the bullet as it flies through the air
serves to stabilize the bullet (like a gyroscope). Stabilized
bullets don't tumble end over end and have greater accuracy.
