    0.15 grams (2.31 grains) of Mauser 71 smokeless (N - Nitro - smokeless) powder
    2.14 gram (33 grains) lead bullet (Bl G" for Blei Geschoss [plain lead] bullet)

    B - proofed using Mauser powder
    U - definitive proof
    G - rifled barrel

    These proofs are from 1891 to 1939. They quit listing the powder charge after 1912.

    Quite possibly the 611 is the date it was proofed - June 1911.

    Sounds like a 22 short. Possibly 22 Long, with that 33 grain bullet. Certainly not a Long Rifle, so even if one fits, don't shoot one in it.

    Rimfire?

    It is rimfire. As to what it's worth, I'm guessing probably half what I paid :)
