Quandary....So I finally reached the pinnacle of 1893 ownership. I'm full steam toward getting a rebore/reline to 38-55, which has been my goal from the first day. This rifle is in excellent shape, better than advertised in my opinion with a rough bore in 30-30. I'm shrugging into my flame suit. I already have one and need another like a hole in the head. In a couple days I get around to the bore light. Pretty nasty, full of cobwebs grime etc looks bad. Can't have that, so out comes the wipe-out and a good while later I push out the worst patch I've ever seen by a good margin. Take a peak, hey.....not to bad more cleaner. Three soaks later I have nice crisp rifling that's shines all the way to the crown. A few passes with bronze brush (I really hate to but exception made) and some more patches and as bad as I hate to say it the rifling is nice. Even the grooves look good. Everybody is saying............better not send it off it's really nice. Time out for fits. Ok should I get a mold or a few cast bullets and smell the roses awhile before forging ahead?
