    Simple Answer: Not as likely to get dinged up at the crucial point of bullet release.

    Re: recessed barrel crown

    Quicker (read cheaper) way to crown a barrel. Straight cut, no need to turn a radius.

    Re: recessed barrel crown

    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.
