Amazed again at my Encore 357max.


I hadn't shot my TC Encore/357Max in at least 2years. But since I was invited on a white tail doe hunt in the next couple weeks, I decided I better sight it in and make sure I could still shoot it.

I had made some changes since I'd shot it. A new scope (2xx-6x Bushnell 3200Elite) and different bullets (Hornady 180gr Single Shot Pistol) than I used in the past (140XTP).

I went to the range and shot it a couple times at 50 yards to get it close, then shot it 3 times at 100yds, then out to 200yds. I was hitting within 2" of the bull (shooting off a bag) and just for fun I shot a clay pigeon with my last shot of the day. There were some guys sighting in some long guns that were absolutely amazed at this "pistol"

What a hoot, and it's just been wasting away in the safe!

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
