Just got a .460 S&W 15" standard taper bbl for the Encore frame. Recoil is severe..blast the same. Any recommendations? I'm going to keep it as I'm a collector. Thanks,Rick.

Try SSK Industries' fish gill brake. Either that, or see if you can send the barrel to MGM to either have the built-in brake installed or have a removable brake added.

Talked to MGM..they gave me a price of 120 and about 2 weeks time. Will be considering it soon..this thing has vicious recoil! Thanks much!

Nothing wrong with magna porting, but a good brake will reduce the recoil way more than the porting. I have porting on my 454 Casull and it makes a difference, but I have a brake on my 475 Linebaugh and it tamed the full tilt load recoil down comparable to heavy 44 mag loads.

KRal,

Who did you use for the brake?

Gary Reeder built the gun and installed the brake. SSK make a great brake as well.

The SSK fish gill brake is excellent. I hunted on Texas a few years back with an Encore pistol chambered in .470 Nitro Express that was equipped with an SSK Fish Gill Brake. The recoil was not that bad, and I even killed a Sika doe with it. Liked it so much, I sent my .35 Whelen Improved Encore to SSK to have a fish gill installed.
