    It looks round to me
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Optical illusion from having 4 lands and grooves I'd say.

    Different from all my others which appear to have a slight counter sink in them. Which is why I asked ... Cheers

    Gently insert a projectile pointy end first into the muzzle. It should contact all the lands simultaneously and if it don't, a re-crown is the least that needs doing.

    Try to stand the rifle dead perpendicular to the ground and lower the pill from above. It will sit nice if all is good, or you might find it can be rocked slightly one way or the other wich might indicate uneven crowning.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.
