Hey, Rey, I shot a lot of groundhogs and deer with my .416 getting ready for the big boys. It puts a big S in stopping power.
That .458L will look like the .416 on double steroids. Damage from those big boys is not for the weak of stomach.
Besides, it's just plain fun having that much power in a small package.

That is about all the BAD one could stand in a handgun I would think. I bet the muzzle blast is very impressive.

I'm no stranger to recoil, but I ache all over just looking at the picture. I salute you! I think.

I HAD one of Wapitirod?s rechambered 45/70 barrels in the Lott. I was sore for days after a range trip.

Thanks everyone once again for the comments.

I ran 6 shots this afternoon at 200 yards which was my first at this distance. Using a 6 inch paper plate my normal post it note and red sticker. I started out on a clean barrel. First shot went high 2-3 near bug hole. It stated to come into its own with shots 4,5,6 for a 3 shot group of 1.322?. Shots 2 though 6 printed 1.954? group. With it set 1.5" high at 100Y, it is 4.5" low at 200Y. I believe it is ready for some real work now.



CMNASH, I don?t have anything larger in weight then the 350?s. I ran data from the Barnes website through Quick Load with the 15-inch barrel these are the results using H4895 with a COL of 3.600
450 TSX start load 71.0 = 1979fs \ max load 75.0 = 2093fs
500 TSX start load 66.0 = 1868fs \ max load 70.0 = 1980fs

Franchise, keep me posted on what might be on the hunt horizon, I?d certainly be up for it.

Doc, yes Sir... Lots of power in a small package = fun!

In General, I find the overall weight of the Encore and big brake make it possible to shoot accurately. For my heavy hitters I use / wear a pair of impact gloves to help soften the shot on my hand. This one is really really loud and make me laugh with every shot.

That gun is really toeing the line between a firearm and artillery.

Also, that is an outstanding group at 200. Congrats

WOW!! That thing is AWESOME! I would love to see video of you shooting it.

Even with a near miss it would suck the oxygen away and still be lethal! LOL!

Great shooting!
