    My 50 cal. Encore likes 250 gr. T/C shockwaves with 100 grs. of Buckhorn 209 powder, if you use the Buckhorn powder, you need to use magnum shotgun primers. My SIL and bought Encores this summer, I got a .50 and he got a .45. We really like them. :up:

    Bet he ment BLACKHORN, my encore does best with 110 of BH and a 250 Shock Wave or Hornady (same thing). Fort Thompson had it but it's pricy at $30 for a little bottle.

    Mine loves 250 grain TC Shockwave bullets and hates Powerbelt bullets.

    90 grains of Triple 7 works for me.
