JB bore paste on an oiled patch wrapped around a brush usually 1 caliber smaller.

This^^^

Monitor the fouling while shooting after you've tried to remove the rust. It might be bad enough that accuracy is affected or at least affected with fewer shots than 20...but it might not negatively change a thing for you. Time (and shooting) will tell.

Hey, what about shooting a few Tubbs bullets through it?
They have a series of grits to smooth the bore. I'd try that if accuracy falls way short even after the JB's method above.

Fire lapping would likely smooth out a problematic spot or two.
A good scrub with a bore brush , followed by a bore brush wrapped with #0000 steel wool. Some polishing compound can be used also, but would need to be cleaned out thoroughly.
A few rounds fired after and then followed up with another good cleaning will show if it worked.
If it still has visible rust and putting, after all that then you are out of luck.
Good luck.

What works also is a bore brush wrapped with strands from a copper choirboy pot scouring pad. Cut the pad open and wrap the brush with the strands. Just make sure the pad is made of copper, some of the cheap ones are copper coated steel. Make sure a magnet doesn't stick to the strands. Works quick and is cheap. ce61

I appreciate the input. I'll have to give it a try.
