    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...

    leadman replied to a thread Wire size in Our Town
    My RV will get the 10 gauge wires hot if I use 2 rv extension cords with the cord from the rv. This would be about the same length as what he is running. I have 2 low draw Coleman a/c units on my rv with a load controller so only one will start at a...
