Getting ready for the upcoming season for elk in unit 15, I decided that I wanted a new ML. Picked up a Encore frame last spring, found a 50 cal barrel at the gun store, pulled a scope off an old rifle that I don’t shoot any more (it still has iron sights) put everything together Thursday night. Went to the range on Saturday, got it on paper at 50 yds, and heard a couple of comments “that’s an ugly rifle”. Moved out to 100yd line used 120gr of 777 loose, 200gr dead center bullet and a 209 primer. Still need to do a little work, couple more trips to the range with this “ugly” rifle and she will be dialed in. The Target was at 100 yd line.
