I've had the same rifle for a year. Present load for 110 Accubond is 53.5 gr RL22, 3142 fps, 3.25 COL, WLR primers. This is very accurate with low deviation and decent pressure and case life in my rifle. Work up though! The bullet is effective but not devastating on goats unless you hit bone, as it is a controlled expansion bullet.
Been experimenting with Hornady 100 standard spire points and RL25 and H4831SC. Both work and are easy to get accuracy with.
Berger made a 95 gr. match 25 caliber, but have no idea about it's availability or performance on game. Also, I've seen no reference to the 87 gr. Berger's game performance anywhere on the web. They shoot well out of my rifle, but even though they have 'match' in their name, the Accubonds are more accurate for me so far.
I've had a lot of fun working with the Encore, and learned quite a bit in the process. Mine would show copper fouling near the muzzle after 15-20 shots. I've been using JB products on it and it has slicked up some, at least 30-35 shots before seeing the same degree of fouling. If you want more info let me know.
