I use 110 grains of 777 pellets and 245 grain Spitfire with a high pressure sabot. I cannot push the bullet down with the ramrod. I have to put the ramrod on the ground and push the gun on the ramrod to seat the bullet. Another thing is primers. If you you a traditional 209 primer, the bullet can jump in the barrel and effect accuracy. I use the Remington Kleenbore primers and my Encore will stack 3 bullets right on top of eachother in the same hole at 100 yds.

I have an omega and shoot 3 50gr pellets of 777, and 250 gr shockwave. It is the most accurate set up I have. I switched scopes out a year ago and zeroed at 100. First shot at 200 yards hit the 1" bull. If I were your buddy I would double check the scope and mounts.

My pelletts would shoot 100 gr great 150 not so good. i switched to 110 grains of Blackhorn with a 200 grain shockwave and can hold a good group at 200 yds now. But you Must use regular shotgun primers not black powder primers.... Blackhorn is the best i have ever used .

Yep!! That's what shot the best from our 2 encores before we sold them
