45-70 Range Trip with New Powder

TC Encore SSK 45-70 with IMR-3031   Well guys, I took the Encore out for a spin, and on the recommendation of Rebel and Georgiaboy44 I got a couple pounds of IMR3031 to try.

TC Encore Headspace How-To

One of the corrective actions you can take it to accurately measure and adjust your headspace to help in reliable ignition, accuracy and optimal brass life.

Lee Breechlock Pro
