Pretty sure I've got a lead-in burr, despite q-tip test pass.
New scope is a little clearer and offers better view as they go downrange past 50 yards.
I've experimented with loading methods to see if it makes a difference and it seems to although in no predictable way.
Jiggling probe rather then pushing it home can get me some less spiral projectiles.

So - What's best method to remove this or any lead-in burr?
I welcome tips on bore polishing for the redneck as well since any burr suggests another and a shiny bore messes with any skirt a little less.
Patch with jeweler's rouge? That simple?

Crown is ok.

Pics of pellets pushed through will show smearing if the breech leade is in need of work.

Spiral projectile! You may just need to change your pellet or maybe adjust your power if your gun is capable. If a pushed pellets comes out with no crown burr evidence, I'd be thinking you have pellet stability issues from velocity.
