    Do you care if your gas port is in a land, on a grove, or half and half? Do you think it’s position effects accuracy? If you had the ability to buy a barrel with the port drilled in a specific place would you?

    While I wouldn’t be surprised if it made a scientific difference, can anyone shoot a gas gun well enough to see the difference? I can’t.

    As long as its a quality barrel, I wouldn’t care where the gas port is.

    I would prefer it in a groove because the lands are engraving the bullet.

    Does it affect accuracy? I don’t know, but my most accurate barrels have it drilled in a groove.

    Bullet imbalance is a big deal with accuracy so having a gas port that does something different to the bullet than the other rifling probably doesn’t do accuracy any positive things.
