Nice rifles, have owned various examples over the years. If not sanded off, on the left side of the wrist of the stock is where the cartouche should be on the wood. If it's the original stock that year is when it left the Springfield armory. The attachments are from Lyman's 50th edition manual, there is some data for N150 with a 220 gr weight. I happened to use IMR 4350 powder with 165 or 220 grain bullets, my powder charge info is not in front of me at the moment. You're wise to stick with a round nose bullet, the design of the action is such that spire points get damaged as the cartridge is cammed upward and to the right as it leaves the magazine.
