Tho the SSTs will be more aerodynamic but they are not any tougher.2 50 grn pellets will net you around 1800-1850 fps IIRC. In order to get 2 holes you are going to need go to a tougher bullet...namely a copper bullet if you want consistant reliable penetration at those fps. or bump up to a 300 grn bullet as has been suggested...but then you have more recoil. If this do not appeal to you do as suggested and keep it under 100yds.

I shoot 240 grain XTP's out of my encore and have never had a problem. Shot them in a Knight T5 Woodsman for years before that with no issue. I love 'em. Definitely don't get the 180 or 185 grains as they don't pass through.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
