Thread: Encore

    Default Encore

    Well, I haven't been shooting too much lately, but when I did take the .454 out, I wasn't getting very good groups at all. Seems that while I was shooting the heavy .45 Colt loads it did well, but after less than ten rounds of .454 loads, my front sight almost fell off... Oh well, I was going to scope it anyway....

    I got to get back to the range yesterday with the Encore and another box of handloads... and I did get to mount my Burris on this barrel. It shot pretty well...but not anything to write home about. At 50 yards I was getting all of my shots in the 8, 9, and 10 ring, but it wasn't as consistent as I'd like.
    I'm going to try a few different powders and see how they do...and maybe a cast .45 -270-SAA bullet, if I can find a load without having to buy another pound of powder.
