Default Fat Barrel

I have a 54 Cal Hawken I built many years ago and wanted to use it for Blk Powder season. When trying to sight it in using a lead sled as a rest it shoots some dead center and then it can't hit the paper at all. Cleaning and or loading the barrel I notice the brush hits a bulge or obstacle 3/4 way down. So it takes extra bush to get it past. So I'm guessing this could be the problem.I tried soaking and solvents but the problem won't clear itself. Where do I take this barrel to have it fixed. Or if I get a new barrel like 50 Cal will it fit my gun correctly and I also had the barrel browned so i'd like it to match the rest of the gun. I would appreciate your help. Thanks
