RE: Walmart

Buyer Beware.

A few years back, the Sprting Goods manager at my local Walmart informed me that the majority of the guns they sell are factory defects that have been reconditioned. He said that...

RE: Stayin Dry

Personally, I have never had a problem with rain and hang fires and such in 20+ years of ML Hunting. I used TC Hawkens (majority of those year), 700 ML and Encore (last 4 years). But I will preface...

RE: New encore help please

Just some advice from my encore (I shoot 150 grains though). If I shoot 3 inches high a 50 yards, I am punching holes 4-4.5 high at 100. I start leveling off to zero at about 130-140 yards. I try not...

RE: Various Hornady 240 Grain XTP Bullets

Alsagr,

Forget buying the pre-made sabot loads that Hornady puts out, you are paying a premium for those. I suggest asking you local gunshop (not Walmart) to order you a box of what even XTP...

RE: Various Hornady 240 Grain XTP Bullets

I used to shoot the .44 in 300 gr out of my Rem 700ml. Talk about knocking the snot out a dear.

My encore shoots the .45 cal in 240 gr. It too is a slobber knocker (but that might be due to the...

RE: Remington 700ML problems big time

Squuueeezze the trigger.

RE: question on bullet grain weight

I imagine you are correct about what you are saying on MV. What I was refering to was down range velocities (based on physics theory only) as it is related to downrange energy and mass. MV is a nice...

RE: 100 vs. 150

I also recomend a limbsaver recoil pad (about 30 bucks) if you shoot 150 grains. The company claims reduced felt recoil by 50%. I will attest to that statement after putting that pad on my frame...

RE: 100 vs. 150

The American desire for more power drives the 150 grain magnum craze. With that being said I do shoot 150 grains out of my encore. It shoots fine with 100 grains (nice groups), but in the field the...

RE: New to ML, what do I need to know?

Welcome!!

My advice? Avoid the 150/200 yard shots if at all possible in the field. Sure, my Encore shoots pretty good groups at 200 yards with sand bags and a bench, but that is awful hard to...

I have not experinced that problem, and I don't dry patch the butter out of my encore after storage. I do however run 2 or 3 209 primers through mine which could take care of any excess butter.

RE: question on bullet grain weight

A lighter bullet does not neccessarily mean higher velocities. The velocity of the bullet is derived from the pressure created in the barrel. Higher pressure tend to produce higher velocities.A...
