Load Developing with a Worn Bore

I have been having problems with this rifle and precision for a good long time now, and after a week or so of fiddling around with it, I found that the bore was worn to the point of needing to use bullets of a larger diameter than usual.

The rifling is still strong, it is that the bore was being worn evenly. Totally different than what people were saying happens. Makes me think that rifles that are widely known as "barrel burners" wear differently than these lower pressure and temperature firearms.
