    F8CFA777-3503-4B38-95A8-8D513AE60DC1.png Finally took the Encore Brux barrel out. Received from Luke back in March and just did get a chance to take it out. Pretty impressed! Was only able to stretch it to 200yds and I’m not the best of shots but very happy. Load was 65gr 4198 under a Alco 250gr all copper HP with a light one hand pressure to seat.

    Nice shooting and nice looking rifle! Did you have to size the Alco bullets?

    Yes! They sized easy enough and didn’t need to anneal to get them to obturate and not key hole and haven’t noticed any flyers. Bad thing is, I like how they shoot (haven’t tried on game, yet) and they no longer carry them. I think I bought the last 150 they hade in stock and when I talked to them, they said they would probably not going to do another batch.
