Default Showing off my Encore

Haven't posted much for awhile. Man things get busy with 3 kids in school. Anyway, a few years ago I had a Pro Hunter that ended up being sold due to some medical bills. Long story short, for my birthday this year my wife insisted that I build my "ultimate muzzleloader" like I had talked about doing before. Got it done a couple weeks ago. Shot it for one sessions but had some scope issues so had to cut it short. I'm hoping to get out in a couple days to try again.

TC Pro Hunter
MGM 20" .45 barrel, 1-14 twist
Williams front sight, scope base for scope for load development, NECG peep for hunting
Boyds Laminate stock
Bellm Springs

I like it a lot

I just put one together also. Mine is a 45 with a Bergara barrel I gathered the pieces over the winter and am getting ready to sight it in. I used the pro hunter stock and forearm and a Nikon 4 x 14 scope.

So far I have some 200 gr. SST's and I just ordered some 200 gr. XTP's now that a couple places have them in stock. I have both Harvesters and MMP sabots.
For now it's going to run on smokeless powder, but honestly once time frees up and the kids are in school, I will probably switch back to BP subs and experiment with sabotless.

a very nice looking rifle. If I had one like that, I think I might even go all out on a scope of real quality. Very nice... glad you got it.

I don't care much for inlines, but that is a great picture and a very cool rifle.
