I will give you an exellet load for the Encore actually two. The easy one for you to buy and shoot is 120g of Triple Se7en FF with a 250g Shockwave bullet. The second shot is the 120g of Triple Se7en and a Hornaday 265g fpsp .44mag bullet with mag express sabots. You need to find a reloading store to get the bullets but they work great.

First off, welcome to the forum...

As for a load for your encore, they are not too fussy from all the posts I have read. I am sure that someone will be able to get you shooting long distance bulls eyes.

Cayugad, you are right that was rude of me not to welcome him to the forum I just noticed it was his first post

Well welcome and try the loads I listed

I use 110 grains of 777 3xf with a 200 grain shockwave, but my encore has seemed to eat up any sabot I've sent it's way they're really not that picky. The conicals I've tried through it don't seem to do as well but they had acceptable preformance.

I assume that your Encore is .50 caliber. My most accurate load is a 250 grainHornady SST in front of 120 grains of granular PyrodeX. It makesone inch groups at 100 yards with abetter shooter than me behind it.
