Recently found this site while looking for information on handgun calibers for the 14" Contender, Encore or 15" BF falling block pistol. I'm interested in a caliber to hunt coyotes & deer without too much fur damage on the coyotes. I've narrowed it down to the Encore in .243 or 6mmBR or possibly the BF in their 6.5mmBR. The 6.5 looks great for deer but I'm not sure if there are any loads suitable for coyotes. Since 1986 have used a TC contender in .35 Rem for all my deer hunting and the either the Encore or BF pistol will replace it. If anyone has experience loading the 6.5mmBR it would be great hearing from you. We have more coyotes in upstate NY than most people realize.
