    Yes, get it cleaned/inspected by a person who knows and then always oil and store in a dry place.

    I would say to take it to the local gunsmith just to be sure. You do not want to take a chance when it comes to stuff like that.

    Pitting will affect longer range accuracy as it may/can affect the rounds trajectory as it leaves the barrel causing an imbalance wobble.

    I was recently scrubbing the copper fouling out of my Remington 700 and noticed some pitting in the barrel? How much will this pitting affect accuracy? Would running some of those Tubbs abrasive bore finish bullets help to restore accuracy by smoothing down the rough spots? What is the best non-abrasive copper remover?
