WHAT DOES HUNTING RIFLE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hunting rifle

Rifle

Top: Baker rifle, a 19th-century flintlock rifle Middle: M1903 Springfield, an early 20th-century bolt-action rifle Bottom: АК-47, a mid-20th-century gas-operated, magazine-fed assault rifle A rifle is a firearm designed to be fired from the shoulder, with a barrel that has a helical groove or pattern of grooves cut into the barrel walls. The raised areas of the rifling are called "lands," which make contact with the projectile, imparting spin around an axis corresponding to the orientation of the weapon. When the projectile leaves the barrel, this spin lends gyroscopic stability to the projectile and prevents tumbling, in the same way that a properly thrown American football or rugby ball behaves. This allows the use of aerodynamically-efficient pointed bullets and thus improves range and accuracy. The word "rifle" originally referred to the grooving, and a rifle was called a "rifled gun." Rifles are used in warfare, hunting and shooting sports.
