Simply get a new standard barrel and bushing and you will probably be OK. Another option is to measure the OD of your barrel and buy an undersized bushing and have it reamed out to the proper size to fit your barrel. Rick
I hate to nitpick on this, but having an oversize bushing fitted to the barrel would be "accurizing" under the rules and not allowed. The simple solution is to buy a GI spec barrel and bushing and see if that helps. My out-of-the box, Auto Ordnance keeps them inside the 9 ring at 25 yards, which is good enough for this match.
