Simple question guys: what's are the advantages of a recessed crown??
Simple Answer: Not as likely to get dinged up at the crucial point of bullet release.
"The Pain of War cannot exceed the woe of aftermath"
Quicker (read cheaper) way to crown a barrel. Straight cut, no need to turn a radius.
OK guys, tks. I think I knew the protection thing, but is it more accurate or is it possibly "kept more accurate" due to the recess? Didn't realize it was cheaper but the lack of radius work does make sense!!!
It's not inherently more accurate than any other type of crowning, but it does provide protection for the rifling right at the point where any tiny ding can send bullets awry.
"He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?" Micah 6:8
That's what I thought pisgah. tks
