    I got this press in a trade, I have all the parts for it. I tried to use it as a progressive press but it was impossible to use it that way. I ended up making a two stage press out of it and it works great. This press was designed to use 310 dies...

    This was my grandsons hunt in Texas. He shot the big pig in the middle with a 44 mag 94 Winchester and my reloads. The load was a 250 Keith with 9 grs of Unique. The 94 was mine I gave it to him a few years ago, he shot the pig at about a hundred...

    leadman replied to a thread Encore 223 in Single Shot Guns
    I have a 23" Contender that I have shot specially prepared 55gr boolits at over 3,600 fps. Accuracy was around 2" at 100 yards. Better accuracy was 2,700 fps. Very easy to get 2K fps out of the 223 with cast. I use linotype because it fills the...

    I have fired cast in my Encore with 28" barrel. While it did not lead it was not spectacular and I got distracted away from it. IIRC I was pushing a 140gr and 160gr around 2K fps. I think I was using SR4759 but it has been 5 years or more since...

    I figure I would make a thread on this, that way if someone comes across this rather odd case they can read about it. I had someone ask me to make this case, took some reasearch but all it is, is a 25-20 trimmed down to 1.155-1.150 in length. I...
