Well, just read the membership post that said we're up in the 130's, so I guess I'm not #80. Think I'll wait and hear from the Posse leader before my boots get any soggier!

I've been here for some time, watching. I blend in....you've seen me but didn't realize it. By the time you figure out who I am it's too late.

Hi all -
I'm very new to this forum, but glad to find Spencer shooters out there.
I own a 56-56 rifle in the 22,000 serial range, that after many years I am just getting back to shooting.
I use a Rapine flat-nosed, heeled bullet that weighs in at 379 +/-2 gr., and use both 50-70 cases and some of the new starline 56-60 brass.

To fire it I have an S&S Firearms centerfire block, and a replacement tube.  For safety, I filed down the follower in the tube so that it is flat-nosed like the bullets.

I recently tried some Trail Boss - 9 gr. loads and clocked in at around 1000 fps. - which seemed quite safe for the old girl. The 50-70 cases came in slightly higher, and the longer 56-50 cases came in slightly lower, and with more variation.  If I can find the right tools, I'll probably cut down the 56-50s, after I figure out how to modify them to extract properly.

Thanks!  'Looking forward to trading notes.

'Frenchie' LaFrance, glad to be here. I'm going to chew through all these posts and learn all I can from them.

I don't have a Spencer yet, but I've been reenacting the 3rd US Infantry (1860-1865) for 11 years now and want to expand that up to 1872 for my NCOWS and GAF impressions. I want a .56-50 Spencer rifle, not a carbine. It turns out the Spencer rifle is good for the post-War 3rd Infantry and also for doing Civil War US Navy! I mean, is that cool, or what?
Yours, &c.,

Good to have you Frenchie, I have wanted a Spencer Rifle since the dorn of time! But living in my part of the world waiting for hot firearms is normal!  Ce La Vie...  Finaly, it seems like I am going to get my Spencer this fall.  I am working on my Blackeslee six tube cartridge box in the meantime.! Just got hold of some nice brass tubing to use in it, yes I know they are suposed to be tin, but the brass is nicer and the size/fit is exelent!

Guess this is where I check in. Nowonder_1999, no affiliation, just got an old 1865, and got it talking again. Need some pointers on bullet design. I have a couple of molds, and have loaded a couple of hundred rounds. Shot 20 with startling results:
1) Gun didn't blow up
2) 50 yards averaged better than a 9 for a 20 shot group.
3) Gun didn't blow up
4) Starline brass worked fine
5) gun didn't blow up

and did I mention; the gun didn't blow up?

Hey, how ya'all doing.
I've been trying to join for several weeks now, finally talked to the Marshal.  I've been in love w/the Spencer since I was a little kid and found an old case up in a old Ghost town in the Mtns south of the ranch.  I figure to mostly shut up, as you folks know a lot more than I do.
