IMO.... I doubt you'll see much (if any) gain in performance.

I agree with velocity, but I thought you were trying to sell your cannons?

Rifling will improve your accuracy, but not the power/distance your cannon produces.

I remember a test someone did, comparing a rifled to and unrifled barrel, I don't know where the results are located but the rifling gave a pretty noticeable decrease in group size.
Yeah, it's still a potato and it's not going the shave the fleas off a dog's back at 400 yards, but if you're target shooting it may be worth it.

IMO it is just canals for the gas to escape around the projectile in most cases

Depending on your ammo rifling may well increase the distance and the power at distance at some small expense in the power at the muzzle. A "bullet" shaped round will fly farther from a rifled barrel.
