Possibly, but from what I read Remington kept all components from each rifle they rebuilt together understanding the desirability of these was to keep as much of the original rifle together as possible.

Nice piece of history. It will be even better if you can trace its use in action and to whom it was isssued. Congratulations.

Of course in any target shooting it's as much...or more...about the shooter than the rifle. However from what the military expected:
200 yards (183 m): 1.3 inches
273 yards (250 m): 1.4 inches
300 yards (274 m): 1.9 inches
The radial distance from the calculated center of impact of the first target compared to the calculated center of impacts of the subsequent targets shall be less or equal to 1.086 MOA (3.3 inches @ 300 yards, 2.2 inches @ 200 yards, 2.4 inches @ 200 meters) on an average basis.
I'd say your rifle lives up to expectation and then some.
