I have this bolt action rifle I inherited. I can tell that the barrel is bigger then a .22 lr and smaller then a .223 the only marking on the gun is a burn stamp on the stock of the country Silesia. I took the gun apart and on the bottom of the barrel near the action are some symbols and numbers 88 or 8.8 m/m, 3.26, 2 2 1, and 21
I spent all day trying to research this gun and I can’t find anything..

22 lr is .223. .223/556 is .224. How can you tell a thousandth difference in the barrel or bore with out using something precise to measure it?

It could be .243. An unfired bullet wont fit in the bore.
