My Encore was bought in 2005 or 2006:  It has the old screw in breech plug.   For years i used the 250 grain SST bullet with 100 grain charges of Pyrodex or JSG.   Few years ago, in preparation for an elk hunt,  i sighted the rifle with  the 300 grain .452 XTP magnum bullet along with 120 or 140 grains of Black MZ powder.   i've killed about 12-15 deer and a bunch of hogs with that load.
