After it's been rifled if there's much that needs to be done Lead Lapping is the best way.

More to it than just lapping. It’s best to do it as a blank because of “belling” the ends of the barrel. That or lap it and cut it back and recrown and set back the chamber when finished. Or buy a premium barrel that’s lapped from the factory.
