Thanks for the feedback, and yes, I am planning to do some lapping on it.FiftyBMG, I am convinced you need to JB Bore paste that gun. from the reflections and the illumination of the barrel surface on two planes you have lots of carbon build up.. and maybe some lead. you will find that JB will make this barrel look and shoot better.
Have excellent results with Accelerator and Wipeout.If it is rust pits,or caustic fouling,you are probably not going to hurt it by going after it aggressively. But...go as you feel comfortable with. I feel that Wipe Out will give you gentle results,and actually leaves a rust preventative coating behind. I believe that the Bore Tech products are similar. From the looks of it,you are either going to have to get aggressive, or spend weeks and weeks cleaning. I would like to follow along with your borescope,as I think most here would. Good luck!
Glad you replaced it. Dirty steel (inclusions) is a time bomb, let alone an accuracy issue. Barrel steel should never have that condition.Heres a picture of the last 2" of a basically new aftermarket barrel with about 100 rounds through it, this was #1 contour 22" SS 6.5-284 barrel, it was a 0.3" shooter that went to 2.0" groups, man I was scratching my head on this one until my gunsmith found this in the last 2" of the barrel.
Its called inclusion or impurities in the metal and will only show up after you shoot it, the company promptly replaced the barrel.
Are you talking about Boretech Eliminator or Bore Tech Cu+2 Copper Remover?As suggested, soak the bore over night with Boretech and remove all of the copper and then use the bore scope again. Chances are that the same defects will also be on the lands if this is the problem.

I know you were not addressing me but I can tell you that personally I have had good success with just Eliminator. Boretech even recommends leaving your bore wet or coated with it during long term storage.Are you talking about Boretech Eliminator or Bore Tech Cu+2 Copper Remover?
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
