Absolutely do this before using abrasive cleaners!! Those little spots may very well disappear after firing a few rounds......

Thanks for all the replies!

Pitting wins it I think...

Acetone, Copper Solvent, MEK, a light rubbing with JB, nothing will touch it.
It's pretty rough when you run a patch over it.

I'm guessing by the wisdom here, that it won't hurt the accuracy too much. I wonder if it'll copper foul faster? That was another good thing about this barrel, it would shoot and shoot and shoot without fouling. I guess we'll see. Unfortunately, it'll be a little while before I can shoot it again.

Maybe I didn't trash it!

I did run the borescope down my Weatherby 270Win that'll shoot 1/2" @100 all day long, and man does it look like a hack job compared to the Cooper! I ran it down my Feddersen 22LR too, and the 452 CZ. They'll all shoot lights out, but none of them are as pretty as this one... Maybe she'll still shoot, and not foul up too bad.

Now the borescope is going into the cupboard. No sense in worrying over something I can't fix at this point. I'll let the targets and the patches tell me what she's doing now.

Thanks Guys

To me, it almost looks like carbon buildup.

You hit the nail on the head. Shoot it and I bet it will still give you goose bumps and pleasure. Bill K

A year ago Rider showed up with his fancy new toy bore scope.
Knowing how I'd abused the H out of my '17 Enfield for years since 1958.
Cooking it til it glowed in the dark a couple dozen times I wasn't much surprised that it was alligatored all the way to the muzzle.

Next day or so I ordered a new barrel and had it put on just a month or two before our best gunsmith died. I've shot it half dozen times in the trap I welded up in the shop is all.

At times I wish I had a bore scope. Til I look thru that old barrel and it looks so shiney and not a mark anywhere to be seen. Though the rifling is so worn it's hard to see too.
Maybe a $50 or so bore scope would end up being too costly after all. I put close to $400 in that one barrel job over looking thru it that one time.

Good luck with the proof in the pudding. Put 50 thru it, then let us see what it looks like. Good luck.

Those are corrosion pits.

You can't hurt a bore with JB or Iosso.

Corrosion pits can't be gotten ride of with JB--or can they?

I doubt you can remove the pitting with JB. I would shoot it and watch to see how much faster it fouls up with shooting, and clean accordingly. A slightly coarser abrasive might help a bit, depending on where that pitting was located in the barrel and how much time and money you want to spend to polish it.

Looks like corrosive worm tracks - or un-disciplined pine beetles in the cambium of pine trees.
Likely pitting of some sort - interesting layout patterns, though.
I would clean it well, shoot it and see what happens.

JB and Iosso won't remove any pit but it'll smooth the edges out a bit so the jackets don't scar as bad passing over a pit. Let it get a bit dirty, it'll fill in a bit.

Cloth fibers, small droplets of cleaning solvent and small imperfections look like a tragedy at first.
