Default Win 70 classic bad barrel

I have a NIB .338 in SS Classic model 70 that shoots good under MOA for about 30 shots then copper fouls so bad they're barely on a plate.The gunsmith took a peak with a bore scope and there are chatter marks from the rifling being cut from the factory.Will have to try firelapping the bore {NECO] as Winchester a multi-million dollar company doesn't have export permits to send my gun back to Canada!And they didn't have the foresight to have a Warranty repair Gunsmith here either! Sad customer service to say the least...................A friend bought one of the new Savage accu-stocked .338's and right out of the box 1/2 MOA over and over again...................Harold.........a former Winchester fan!
