Without stating the range, wind conditions, what the target is, what shooting style you use , and what weight you prefer I don't think you'll get a reasonable answer. You didn't even say if you're using the Encore as a rifle or a pistol.
I have a Rem 700 in 280 AI. It's a good cartridge. But so are the 7mm08, 270Win, 7mm Rem Mag and 30-06 which surround it for case capacity and bullet diameter. None of those are my most accurate rifles at any range, but they're all good for hunting. The more accurate rifles typically have unsuitable terminal ballistics or are impractical to carry.
