I should have made it clear, I already rebarreled it last winter. I'd seen this mess before in the borescope, in fact my buddy the gunsmith bought the borescope so we could look at this barrel. But wasn't able to take a picture of it till I made this adaptor. Hard to describe it in words that will give the full impact of it. I saved the barrel to take this picture. Savage turns out some real shooters, alas, this wasn't one of them!
Since then the bore scope has gotten really good use in his business. It really helps when you can show folks what the problem is. We want pictures and the ability to hook it to a TV so the customers can see it with their own eyes. It's hard to tell folks what to look for but narrating it on a TV or computer screen works great. We are almost there.
I want to get some pictures of the throats and crowns in all my rifles before I give the borescope back. He's bringing over a .300RUM late this afternoon so we can get some pictures of the throat in it. The chambers on those UM's seem to wear out in remarkably few rounds.
