I'm not well schooled in this area either. I have faith that the Garand's I've recived from CMP have accurate TE and MW readings. When the bore is cleaned and you can see the rifling is strong I believe then that the bore is OK. If it then shoots well and gives decent group sizes then I'm more than satisfied that the barrel is good. I've had several bolt action milsurp Mausers that had dark bores with some pitting. Some were still very accurate and some were basket cases that gave 12 inch groupings at 100 yds.
