Backed by an MOA Accuracy Guarantee, it's a real performer.
More about 5R rifling
5R rifling's unique design causes less bullet deformation. When the bullet jacket is less deformed, there will be less jacket fouling in the grooves. This results in enhanced accuracy from shot to shot, greater bullet stability over multiple shots, and ultimately, a rifle that's easier to clean thoroughly. T/C Rifles with 5R rifling deliver Minute of Angle accuracy... guaranteed.
