LX cranks FC-M571, confirm 113 width???

I need to replace my octalink BB for my LX crankset. I think the width is 113, but the label has long since been rubbed off. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks all.

"Shimano sometimes specs two different lengths for the same crankset. This usually relates to the diameter of the seat tube. The shorter dimension is normally preferred, but bikes with fat seat tubes may require the longer size to accommodate the swing of the front derailer."
