    Does anyone load for the encore pistol in 30-06? I have 4350, W748 and some 4895 with 150 grain pills. Any help would be appriciated.

    I`ve no experiance with the Encore but do load the `06. I`d go with the 4895 simply in the hopes of reducing muzzle flash. I think 4350 will give a couple extra fps but the slower powder will likely also light up the neighborhood. IMO

    I shot a pistol in 6.8 SPC. That 06 should be a handful. :)

    lymans 49th, page 432 lists IMR 4895 with a start weight of 45 grains.
    doesn't list the other two.

    Which powders do you have IMR or Hodgon, it's kinda critical that you folks make this differentiation .

    Hodgon's online data center has a plethora of 30-06 hand cannon data
