For goodness sake , rifling makes all the difference in accuracy otherwise why bother ?. Your friend would be hard pressed to get that sort of accuracy if the card was face on at 100 yards or even 50 yards if there was any wind,As an after thought, one of the gentlemen that shoots with us on weekends, has a custom built 40 cal smooth bore (colerain barrel) rifle. I have never seen anyone out shoot him ( cut playing cards at 20 steps is common ).
He always uses spit patches (pillow tick) and refuses to use anything but round balls he makes. So I'm wondering how much the rifling really plays in accuracy, since his gun is a 1:0 twist.
