Shoot it first and see how it does. I've got a few black powder guns here that are on the other side of a hundred years old whose barrels look pretty sketchy, but you'd be surprised what just a hint of rifling in that pitting will do to stabilize a bullet. The only gun that I've been tempted to sleeve is a Winchester 1906 that was converted from .22 shorts to .22s/l/lr, but shot with corrosive shorts. It eroded the chamber to the point that the brass won't extract because the case mouth is expanded too far. But it's still quite accurate.
