Not bad, just a little dark in the grooves. What's so interesting about Winchester Lee rifles, both musket and sporters, is that they use Metford rifling. So the grooves are unusually shallow. Take that and couple it with the hot burning cordite powder used in much of the early smokeless ammo and many times the bore isn't in great condition. So I'm pleased that this one is as good as it is.
