If you flip back through some of the earlier posts under the Powder Room Forum, you will find several topic discussions on T7 pellets.

I've used T7 pellets in the past.  Loose T7 (vs. T7 pellets) ALWAYS gave me better groups on the range when using sabots.  However, at 100 yards my groups opened-up quite a bit when I mixed T7 pellets and Powerbelts.

Pellets are good, but I found when I shot long distance (200) they didn't hold a candle to loose powder.  With you shooting an Encore, I would highly recommend Blackhorn.  I'm sure you've heard all the hype and it is deserved.  It transformed my gun into a great shooting gun that I'm 100% confident will hit its mark when called upon.  Try it and you'll never go back.

I see zero reason to use T7 over BH 209.
