Well I finally got my 15" Encore shooting well, & I'm using 405 gr Remington bullets & getting about 1650 fps.
1st ?
Anybody have an opinion on this bullet at this velocity on brownies? Is it tough enough? Hopefully in about a month I'll be chasing brownies & black bear with it.

2nd ?
If I can't kill a brown bear with this gun will my 6" DW .44 mag stop a brown bear?
