Guys I am looking to put together a deer hunting single shot(Encore) barrel for cast bullets. I like the rimmed cartridge idea for the Encore. I already have a 45-70 barrel. I am interested in what you guys think is the best cartridge where I can use cast bullets at their nominal velocities that would be most effective as a short range(out to 200 yards max.) deer rifle?? Any other good rimmed cartridges to work from??
Isn't the 38-55 based off the 30-30 case?? Thanks, Tom.
