Do try at least one factory round being mindful of your face and eyes. Should the case crack from this round, the measurements of what remains might be useful to the 'smith. If the problem remains, have the barrel checked for condition from throat to muzzle. I would have the barrel screwed into the receiver to correct a head-space issue if indeed the 'smith determines that to be the problem. Like you, my first preference would be to keep the original barrel due to all the family ties rather than put a new barrel on that piece of history, provided it is decent enough to keep.
