My 'like new' M1884 rifle also has a bore in the .45xx range. I slugged the bore using a soft lead fishing weight. I then tightly wrapped the slug with a known thickness of paper and measured that diameter, then subtracted (by double) the paper measurement to get the actual bore diameter. Is that an acceptable method?
