Sport Rifles are firearms designed to be fired from the shoulder, with a barrel that has grooves ("rifling") cut into the barrel walls. The grooves of the rifling in a sport rifle's barrel cause the bullet to spin around an axis corresponding to the orientation of the weapon. When it leaves the barrel of the sport rifle, the spin averages out curve from imperfections improving accuracy and prevents tumbling which improves range. The word "rifle" originally referred to the grooving, and a rifle was called a "rifled gun." Sport rifles, as the name implies, are primarily used for hunting and shooting sports.
Some of the most popular brands in the Sport Rifles category are Browning, CZ, H&R, Henry, Legacy Sports International, Marlin, Mossberg, New England FireARMS, Remington, Rossi Braztech, Ruger, Savage, Thompson Center Arms, Weatherby and Winchester.
