I didn't want to be that blunt but that's the way I felt. I personally appreciate honest answers even if I disagree with them or it isn't what I would like to hear. wM1

When I was active as a gunsmith I used a product called Steel Wool Sponge used after applying a coat of a good oil such as
BreakfreeCLP. My customers often expressed surprise at how much any remaining blue would be left after the rust came off.
I believe the steel wool is carried by Brownells and I have found it at gunshows. I have heard good things about the use of
bronze wool but have not tried it myself. I did not use Rem Oil as I thought It too light for the purpose. Good Luck and have
fun with your Spencer!

Thanks Major--I will note these date codes so I can be sure of not having a problem. All my uncles have crossed the Great Divide--
Probably sitting around a campfire and sipping bourbon whiskey and telling stories ( some may actually be true). Great bunch of guys.

It wasn't the frames that cracked, it was the barrel at the bottom rear, where it is clearanced for the cylinder gas ring.  Some .44's did this as well.  Hasn't been a problem for a few years.  But the cylinder walls on the .45 are very thin, especially at the bolt notches so shooting mild loads is definitely recommended regardless of cartridge case (45 Colt, 45 Shofield, 45 Cowboy Special)

I have read in the past of frame cracks in 45 LC caliber open tops . Would going to modest loads in 45 Schofield help
With this potential problem or just go to a 44 or 38 caliber? The only open tops I have experience with are percussion
Cap fired.

medica15al,

Pretty much my thoughts as well! All of my firearms are used with BP, and a good many of these are classed as antiques (pre 1898).

Arrest me, through me in Jail and I will have all the benefits that the House and Congress have voted in for themselves.
No income to speak of, but who cares with free lodging, food, health care and Cable TV.
That is more than I can get from Social Security (that I have paid into for more that 50 years)
My best,
 Blair

NOZ; R-P makes some gold colored plastic hulls, "Nitro 27", I think. They look like shiny brass in your cartridge loops. And they are R-P's highest quality.

Jack,

My suggestion would be to check out the "n-ssa.org".
They shoot a lot of Spencer as well as Henry. (Spencer in 56-56, 56-52, and 56-50 along with Henry in 44-40 and 45 Colt.)
Also look in their vender section for "Moose Moulds". These folks offer probably the best variety of moulds for these calibers.

For my money, I like the heavier bullet offered in the Spencer calibers.
I hope you find this info helpful.
My best,
 Blair
