Spencer Shooting Society / FS Chiappa Spencer rifle
« Last post by Shortgrub on February 18, 2024, 12:33:34 PM »
I have a Chippa in 56/50 cal. that needs a new place to shoot. I would rate this as a 94% condition rifle. Small dings and a couple of small lighter spots on the barrel, excellent bore. $1500 + S&I

  thanks

I guess I should pull it off the wall. I'd need some brass and dyes, but why not  :-\

I have .312 Diameter 167 Grain FP - Grooveless Hi-tec coated Missouri Bullets.

This is the bullet Missouri Bullets offers for Mosin-Nagant, I use them in my SMLE
NO.1 MK.III* and Trailboss out to 50 yds.

Trai Boss works great in a Mosin.  Snake Oil's load sounds good, too.

I hope not to lose any, they are extremely shiny!!

I have not done a lot of load development, but my Russians really like a 220 grain lead gas check sized to .313 with 10 grains of promo.

I based this off of "The Load" 10 grains of Red Dot works for anything under a 100 yards in a 30 caliber round. I find it to be a fairly pleasant load to shoot... I also use it in my krags. I have also used it for long range, but have to really plan for some drop.

Do you use Trailboss in your Nagant ?

I have a Tula 91/30 dated 1944, that was given to my Business Agent.
We took it to the range once, when it was his with Soviet surplus ammo, it was not pleasant to shoot.
After three rounds, I was done, it's been a wall hanger since it was handed (given) to me (along with the remaining ammo.)
I guess Dennis was done too  ;)

Thinking about it marking a Smith and Wesson especially an American .44 Colt should be a sin. FWIW the original Russian cartridge used a 275 grain outside lubricated bullet. The cartridge as we know it now didn’t come out until the late 1880’s.

Compression is a fact of life in reloading with black.  I don't reload for an original Spencer, but do for one of the replicas in 56-50.  In Starline brass I can load as much as 40 grains, but it is compressed with a Montana Precision compression die, after a wad is placed over the powder before I seat the bullet.  I adjust the compression die so the bullet is in contact with the wad and does no compression when seated.  This is the same basic method I use for loading 40-65 and 50-70 with black.  Original loads used some compression.  The amount of compression can vary based upon powder brand and granulation.
