    went to the range yesterday ive been working with my new encor ML barrel
    trying to get it to shoot for me.
    Ive tryed .429-240grn cast WC with a sabot and Blackhorn-209 powder and 209 mag primer with poor results...
    switched to a .430-240grn XTP HP with the sabot and Blackhorn-209 powder
    and same primer. at 50 yd it came together 1/2'' groop im happy now. time to check it at 100 I would have done it yester day but i was running out of time. rised it to were im 1'' high at 50 so it should have me dead on at 100. shot two more and they went through the same hole also.

    It's amazing how accurate some loads are.
    That Blackhorn 209 powder is really impressive! :)
