What do you mean by "correct"?

If you're only wanting to know the twist of your rifle, do the old cleaning-rod trick. Use a fairly tight patch. Make a longways mark on the side of the rod (Pentel, for instance) a bit over a foot from the patch. Push the rod down the barrel and stop when there has been one full revolution. Mark a spot on the rod, at the muzzle. Remove the rod and measure the length of travel. That tells you "One turn in xxx inches."

on that old rifle, if it is faster than 1/12 or even 1/14 , I would be surprised...
