Slugged it with lead balls that mic'ed about .313" diameter; proof it was made for the 7.65 Argentine Mauser cartridge then rechambered.
That was common enough back in the day, especially with desirable actions like the 1909 Argentine. People who were eager or didn't know anything about guns would snatch them up and then whine about how it didn't shoot. But this is a factory rifle, factory hammer-forged barrel, so I expect it will shoot MOA or so. Once it's cut down it might shoot better, it might shoot worse. But if it's awful, a new barrel is not terribly expensive. Let's see how it works out! Carry on, taylorce!
