Going to have to get rough with it !!!

If what I suspect is true, lapping the bore could never get the job done. I used emery cloth on one and even though it smoothed out, it was still pretty rough. I still retained some rifling and it did shoot and cleaned better. You go through a bunch of patches to get it half-a$$ cleaned. I'd say do your best and if you are serious about shooting it, get a new barrel or spend a bit more and get it sleeved. Grandpas are very special and understanding !! ...

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
