I stick with loads that are in the trapdoor load ranges. Encore is a light weight,so heavy loads give alot of recoil.Trapdoor loads will get the job done.

I have a friend that bought an MGM 45-70 barrel in muzzleloader configuration so he could use the muzzleloader forearm. It will shoot nickle size groups at 100yds. It's a tack driver of a 45-70. Of course he has worked up some hand loads to get the preformance.You can't go wrong with the MGM barrel.His is 24in.
