Thanks for the info Bob. Aldon

We are very close to this point now.

Re: Just a question?

I bought a savage and started shooting smokeless the 50 cal does great after you learn what it takes to make it work consistantly. I rebarreled mine with a Pac Nor 45 cal and I would be shocked if I missed a deer at 200 yards. My farthest shot so far has been 260 yards and I have about 6 head shot does so far. (These have been 120 yards or closer) as for cleaning I don't do it very often in fact I left it loaded from last year until this year and when I shot it I hit 1/2 Inch to the left of the bullet hole I shot at. On a side note I have a Savage 50Cal muzzloader barrel for sale 60$ shipped.

I have 3 TC encores and a CVA apex. They are all accurate and shoot sub-moa past 200 yds. I have a bergara barrel on one of the encores and it is my favorite followed by the CVA. The apex is a very good gun for the price.

All encores have trigger jobs, oversize hinge pins, and stronger hammer springs from Belms. I shoot dead center bullets in 260 and 300 grains in front of 105 grs of Blackhorn 209 and CCI 209m primers.
