Shot this button buck with my Encore with a 9" barrel in 357 mag. Used a 140 grain Barnes bullet. took a frontal shot with deer coming up a hill at 30 steps.



Shot went through the heart. He managed to run about 25 yards.



Shot this one the day before with an Ecore 20 gauge at 97 yards.

Congratulations
I am surprised that the 357 Magnum is not a 357 Maximum with the Encore Platform to work with.
