Do you know what the diameter of the bore is at its smallest and largest?

My chanter's bore is 19mm at the bottom and 4mm at the narrowest part of the throat, just below the reed seat.

That sounds pretty decent. I haven't measured a Galician, but it's similar to my Asturian, although the Asturian is a tiny bit narrower at the top (~3.66 mm) and wider at the foot (~22.93 mm).

Does the bore increase in a linear manner? (Is the line between 4 mm and 19 mm straight?)
