I was wondering how many grooves are in the popular bench rifle barrel.

I know back many years ago when I was shooting military matches the 2 groove Springfield's I had shot cast bullets the best and was wondering if that may be the case with the lead rimfire ammo or if .22LR shot better with more grooves.

Benchmark 2 & 3 groove. Shilen ratchet and Muller 4 groove. Shilen octagon and Muller 8 groove. Most popular.

Unless there is a geometry that I am not aware of, I think 2 groves would have 2 lands.

Not sure about the specific answer to your question, but I have two 3-groove Benchmark reverse taper barrels that are superbly accurate.

Help me here, im limited. Land is the raised/ high part right? And so it has a groove, low / valley part, on each side.
