Remember, usually in the US the bore diameter is measured in the grooves as opposed to the lands. The lands are the raised areas resulting from the rifling operation. To determine the actual cartridge, you should do a chamber casting. Let me know if you want me to elaborate on that.

I did a wax cast on that Argentine rifle I had and that worked pretty well but on a black powder hand gun not sure how I could do that and get it back out of the bore

There is a silicone (I think) material, that shrinks just a little, on drying, that law enforcement uses to cast the ID of guns that have been intentionally damaged, at the ends of the barrels. I saw it on one of the How catch-em cop shows, on TV. If you have a Cop Buddy, ask about it, or google it.

Cop and buddy in this area does not mix since about 75% of them are on the take like most in the court house. Some people call the court system in this area the Little mafia
