View Full Version : Encore 209x50

I am really interested in the Encore 209x50 for deer season this year. Can anyone give me some ideas on what type of bullet works well with it, and what powder charge seem to work the best? I am also looking about putting a weaver k4 on it as well. Can any one tell me how they stand up to recoil, and would this be a good choice. :confused: :(

I am using 150gr Pyrodex (3 pellets) and 300gr hornady bullet with high pressure sabots. Shoots 1/4 inch groups @ 50yds with iron sights. I just mounted a Leupold fixed 4X and haven't had time to try it @ 100yds yet.

Oh, by the way, it kicks like a mule with 150gr.!!!
