Default Old Enfield's bad barrels

What to do? Wall hangers? Accurate at 50 but I get oval holes lol. Nomatching beaters.
Barrel swap? Or just leave it?

Try recrowning the muzzlles. They may be unevenly worn from cord wear from pull throughs.

I had a NOS barrel from Sarco put on mine. Very worn muzzle/crown keyholed at 25 yards. Now it shoots great. I sent it out to a smith for the work. I'm glad I did it, it was cheaper than buying multiple rifles trying to find a good one.
