A friend shoots 120gr bh209 and a 250gr Barnes. It's right at an inch with that load

I also had alot of trouble with mine. I went to 100 gr 777 pellets and 250 TC shockwave. Shoots awesome now. The yellow sabots load alot easier.

The Encore barrel is known to be a little tighter than most other front stuffers thus making it a chore to load the bullet. So I went with both the Barnes Spit-Fire 250 and 290 grain T-EZ bullet with the blue sabot over 110 grains of Blackhorn 209. These have been the most accurate and tightest grouping loads that I have found for my .50 caliber Encore.

Mine will shoot 3 touching at 100 yards. I shoot 100 grains of pyrodex pellets and a 300 grain Hornady XTP hollow point. I'm shooting the green sabot .44 cal bullets. Probably not breaking any speed records, but it will flat stomp a deer.

Mine shoots 1" groups with 100gr Triple 7 Pellets and 250 gr Hornady SST or TC Shockwaves. Them 2 bullets shoot just the same.

If your shooting powerbelt then just throw the gun away. They absolutely suck. I tried 195 gr, 223 gr and 225 gr and they were horrible.

I totally agree with rem270. If you're shooting power belts just give up till you can get some quality bullets. Some people really like power belts, but I ain't one of them. Seen several guns that wouldn't shoot a consistent group with them. Steered those guys towards some good ole Hornady sabots and problem solved.
