I dare you take pictures of my rifle just kidding. Mine is a '44 with a '43 barrel I wrote Remington and they said that it was correct that the barrels were one to two moth apart. Is yours a two grove barrel? mine is and really yours and mine could be twins even the SN has the same first numbers. Mine shoots cast 200gr bullets all in the X and 10 ring at 100 yds. You have a beautiful rifle and they shoot great. If you do shoot cast be sure to fit the bullet to the bore and I keep mine between 1800 and 1950fps. Great shooters and collectors, lts of history.
