Hi Folks:

My computer died and I lost a bunch of valuable info. Just found this site back. I got a good link here on a BP question.

I just decided to go with a friend on a BP muley hunt. They had some deer at 200-300 yards last year and could get no closer.

SO, I ordered a TC Encore in 45. I can use a scope and probably either Barnes or SST.

Anyway enough of that. THere was some info on a different ignition system to use for better accuracy possibly. Something that used cut down 22 hornet cases. Anyone got that info or link?

You can post or send directly to me

Thanks in advance, Jeff

PS, any load info would be great. Do I buy pellets in 777 or buy loose 3f 777? Both bullets will be around 200 grains IIRC. Looking mostly for accuracy for a 300 yard shot.

Try TWO T7 pellets and T7 primers and 285 gr BT Barnes for good accuracy.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
