Nice work Harold. I have never had the pleasure of hunting those beautiful creatures. I will be in the woods this afternoon and hope to nail my first deer of the season.

Speaking of your Bushnell Banner 4X ... that was the very first scope I ever purchased with my own money (my Dad had a old Redfield around the house I used for a few years). And that scope was the best scope I ever used. I had it on a Remington 742 Woodsmaster Carbine in 30-06 and shot deer out to 150 yards with that simple 4X.

Then one year my nephew who (because his mother could not control him) was living with us, decided to do me a favor and clean my rifles. He then unscrewed the back of the scope and let the gas out. I was mad enough to do something terrible to that kid. But my wife went out and bought me a Tasco 3-9x40mm World Class and I mounted that (the rifle still has that Tasco scope). I sent that back to Bushnell not really thinking they would do anything about it and low and behold they mailed me a brand new Banner 4X scope. So since my father in law was scope shy, I gave it to him for Christmas (I should have gave him the Tasco, but actually that old Tasco has been a great scope).

awesome, my first deer was a doe here in western washington with a TC .54 renegade, home cast RB and 110 3fBP. that brings back memories. The barrel I got on mine is the original 1/48 twist, not really ideal for RB or Conical, I get passable accuracy with both. Shooting the old style side locks is a lot of fun. Happy Day to ya.

When I first got my Encore, I thought I would put a first rate scope on it. I put a Burris Fullfield scope on it. Well after a day at the range the Encore distroyed the scope. I sent it back. They asked me if I had put it on a ML and then told me they were not meant to be on a ML. Still not understanding how things work with different type guns, I put a Bushnell Elite 3200 on next. Well the same thing happened. The vibrations and sonic harmonics are different for shotguns/ML, centerfire rifles, airguns, and rimfire guns.

A good friend had the same problem and told me me about different scopes made for these different guns. I ended up getting a Bushnell Banner shotgun/ML scope for the Encore and all was good again. Luckily this lesson didn't cost me any money.

What kind of accuracy are you getting with that load?
