Who all does it?
Do you provide video or pictures?
What do you charge for it?
On a new build has anyone ever asked for photos of your chamber or throat quality?
Other than for checking to see if the barrel is clean talk about how you use one as a gunsmith.
Shawn. at one time Lilja had a bore scope that he used to inspect the bore of his barrels and
if requested he would supply a video of your barrel for $25.00 extra.
I'm not sure but I think he does not tape the inspection any more for sale.
They are very expensive but can tell you a lot if you are trying to figure out a problem with
a rifle because you can inspect the crown, bore,rifling,grooves, leade, freebore, chamber quality,
breach end of barrel and other things that could be a problem .
I used to make chamber cast using cerrosafe but once I bought a bore scope it made
everything else obsolete except for dimensioning a chamber.
If you suspect a problem with the chamber and cant afford a bore scope you can buy the cerrosafe
from Brownells for less than $30.00 and do a casting of your chamber and throat.
It melts in hot water and can be re used many times.
