BH209 with the Barnes and got a little better. Do you think I'm just not at the sweet spot in the charge? Oh, and no horizontal dispersion at all. I don't shoot this bad and neither should the Encore. It has a wonderful trigger and hing pin. It's tight. Any one suffer this before? What's up ?

Well have you had a chance to shoot it again and how did things work out?

    Sorry, encore, but I have yet to get out. Had company and then bad weather. It's going to get really cold this week, but later it may be ideal for the front stuffer. Will definitely post results for you.
