Throat Erosion

Here is a pic of my 300 wby. Mark V Deluxe throat showing erosion in pic 2 and pic 1 Freeborn to rifling.
I am no expert.  That erosion seems minor to me.
What are your thoughts.
Thanks Grizz

 Not an expert but I have scoped all of my rifles. Looks real good to me.

As best as I can make out (the focus is not the best) it doesn't look very bad at all to me.
Come and take it.

Thereís no meaningful erosion. Rifling looks excellent.

I understand looking after spending a ton on the scope. If the gun is shooting up to expectaions, never fix what ain't broke.  ;D

It doesn't look like it's been shot all that much as compared to other's I've seen.   when it starts looking like a heat checked worn out pressure plate on a car or charred piece of burnt wood , even then I wouldn't start worrying too much unless accuracy starts dropping.

What kind of borescope are you using?   The Teslong borescope looks great for the price.
