I got a deer with my Spencer
« on: January 02, 2021, 09:49:17 PM »
I tried something different this year during deer season. I took out my original 56-50 Spencer loaded with a 350 gr bullet and 27 grains of pioneer powder. The deer was about 25 yards away, the bullet traveled from its neck through the spine lengthwise and exited half way through the deer. I guess that little cartridge has more power than I thought.

don't believe the shooter . . . need to see the deer alongside the Spencer with the shooter . . . who by the way is not a member of SSS . . . now if he were a member, and that happens by sending me an Email to fsgrand2@fairpoint.net then maybe his credibility would jump right up to where I'd believe him  . . .  just saying . . .

...alas, the poster may be in my boat. For whatever reason, CasCity won't accept my pictures.

If you pix are to large, they will not post

Try reducing the size and post again

If what Major 2 wrote doesn't work, Email them to me at fsgrand2@fairpoint.net and I will post them for you . . . just don't send me 20 photos like someone did once ::)  ONE or TWO is OK.

Make sure you put your username in the Email.

Freaking awesome.  Makes me want to do the same with my (presumably, as I haven't gotten around to figuring it out yet) 56-46 sporting rifle.  ;D

Spyder , how about a photo of your Sporting rifle since the deer kill never materialized!
