I thought it might be. I think the confusion on the "earlier barrels" comes from when they became NEF 1871 after 1986 I think thier "earlier" barrels as they are refered to were 1-12 and the later were 1-9. I was having fits with both my Hornet and my Rem Jet til I finally took Tim's advice and slugged the barrels. I used a couple of lead egg sinkers for fishing and knocked them down the bore. If I remember right they both measured .221 groove and .223 land. Truth be told I have not shot either one in several yrs. Once they started making the 5mm Rem mag ammo again and I got a .204 Ruger I never looked back. Shooting Prairie Dogs with the .204 is about as much fun as you can have with your cloths on.

I ran into some 22 Hornets that were .223 diameter. Although I no longer own the rifle, I have two boxes of the .223 bullets leftover. No use for them
