    I made the switch to BH 209 powder and love it. First time I used it a shot 25 rounds in my Encore 209x50 rifle without cleaning! Here is a 3 shot 100 yard group I shot last year with mt 15 inch 209X50 Encore pistol barrel.

    You have a sweet looking Encore Pistol, what is a great shooter too!
    Where did you get the 209x50 15" muzzleloader barrel?

    I found the pistol barrel in the used case at Gander Mountain around five years ago for $150. I hunt in WV so I called WV DNR and asked if it was legal to deer hunt with it. Very nice fellow spent 15 minutes on the phone looking in the regulations and finally read, 32 cal or larger single shot, "your legal!" I have shot two deer with it. 100 gr T7 gave me 1500 fps with a Hornady 240 gr XTP. Respectable velocity from a 15 inch barrel
