rusted barrel
 
If the inside of the barrel is rusted what do you have to do?

Depends on the degree- rusty or rusted?

For light rust, bronze bore brush, solvent, clean. Repeat a couple of times. Use some J-B Boreshine to do final cleanup.

Rusted- as in large flakes of rust, looks like a sewer pipe? Clean, have evaluated by a gunsmith. Will depend on degree of damage, pitting, etc. May NOT be salvagable in extreme cases.
