View Full Version : Land Groove Dimensions?

April 20, 2010, 07:02 PM
I know I'm probably asking a question that's been asked many times before. I also know there's no generic answer. I just need a rough ballpark figure.

Could someone tell me the ID difference between the lands and grooves to a general measurement of what to expect in a 22 Hornet Rifle?

Or, depending how you look at it: The height of the lands or depth of the grooves.

Thanks in advance.

as they have been around so long. Some are .223 some .224 to start with.
Slug the bore and get a real good set of OD and depth mikes to answer your question. (The reason for which is a mystery to me)

Typically, US-made barrels use a .219" bore diameter with .224" groove diameter. European-made barrels use a .218" bore with .224" groove diameter.

Thank you Brandy and Scorch. That's exactly what I needed to know. Much appreciated.
