Both barrels would be 1~12" twist. There are too many variables to say which is more accurate. Condition of the rifling, barrel crown, bullets used, velocity.
To say a six grove barrel is better/worse than a four grove is a discussion that has kept friendly arguements going for years.
My choice would be based on which bore looked to be in best condition.

Mainer is correct the grove debate has raged fro years and know one has any proof one is better than the other. Your B59 marked barrel means your barrel was made in Birmingham Small Arms works in 1959, the other Barrel is an Enfield Small Arms Works made in 1975.
Using the barrel that has the best bore is always good advice.
