Repro Spencer Bore Measurements

Yea, yea I know, the Spencer is a repeater, but I'm guessing someone here has a Spencer hidden in their closet.   
I'm curious what the bore/grove diameter is for one of these in 56-50 if anyone has measured it.
The rifles/carbines are made by Chiappa and sold by Taylors and some others.
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
Mike.

Well, I got one.
So just in case someone was having sleepless nights, I slugged the bore and it measured 0.512"-0.513".   
Now to find a priming tool that will accept the fat base............
Mike.

I've got a couple of originals; one an original center fire the other a converted fro9m rim fire one.  Bore diameters are .515 for both.  Use a 50-70 shell holder on your hand primer.   Fun to shoot, but they take some getting used to.  These are both 56-50 caliber which I think the repops are.
