Thanks!
I still have the wood grip and forearm for it but the Pachmayers are so much more comfortable when shooting.

It is an extremely accurate pistol, especially with the 125gr Nosler Ballistic Tips.

The Contender and Encore are the best gun $ for $ you will ever buy . Super accurate and most people can shoot and reload them faster then with a bolt gun . And for under $300 you can change cal and the scope stay on the barrel so no resight in needed when changing barrels back and forth . .

Won't get an argument from me, that's for sure.

Believe me, those Pachy grips are worth their weight in gold when shooting the big boomers. Only way I can shoot more than a few rounds of 30-06 in the Encore in one session.

Sabots for reloading are still available if you want to try them for yourself along with reloading data. http://www.eabco.com/Reports/report04.html & http://www.eabco.com/store/reloading...s-starter-kit/

I played around with sabot reloads in my SKS rifles a couple years ago with decent results considering they were designed for .308 groove bores as apposed to .312" bores. They were minute of pop can at 50 yds and about 4" groups at 100 but I only worked up one loads using some .224" dia. HP bullets I had left over my my Ruger Mini 14 days,they cycled through the SKS action just fine.

I need to order me another batch and tinker with them over the Winter. Here is a pic of my loaded rds.

Never felt the need to mess with sabots in the Contender. Just as easy to add another barrel if you want to change caliber.

I've never been a scope guy on handguns . I only put scopes on handguns till I find a load I'm happy with and put my Iron sight back on them . Unless it is a bench gun .

Absolutely nothing to do with sabots.
Here's a recent project. Contender with 10" 30 Herrett bbl with 7" threaded and pinned vented 'fake can'. Furniture from my workshop, forearm is spalted sycamore.
Trail Boss provides 'slow' thrust. I can't quite drop to subsonic for the 1:14 twist... unless I load light bullets. But I was trying to get blackout performance.

What are the ballistics on the .30 Herrett?

My 168 gr. Nosler BTHP is only 1500 fps with 22 gr. IMR 3031 but with 125 gr bullets and 7.5 gr. Trail Boss I get 1477 fps.
For a pistol barrel that has been converted to carbine use I find this a handy short range implement.
The comfortable feel of the furniture and the gentle recoil of these loads this 'baby rifle' is the cat's meow.
Another 'project' has been the use of rifle optics on a modified pistol format. Recoil is not allowed.

At 1500 fps with a 168 gr bullet that's enough for close range deer hunting. personally I would limit my range to point where it hits 1,000 fps.

I love to hunt.
I'd hunt 'em with sticks and stones if I had to.
Archery has afforded a much extended season. Here in Roanoke Co. Urban Archery (does with bows)
they give us 9 months of the year now (Sept. 1 to Mar 30) I'll be in my stand again in the morning. Haven't seen the first doe yet but a nice black bear came by on opening day!
I'll hold my shots to close range with the Herrett but I usually carry the 6.5 Grendel or 308 Bellm.
I generally hunt close range anyway, no need for a 'beanfield rifle' here in the Blue Ridge. The terrain doesn't give us a great deal of long shots.Here is the 308 Bellm setup:

Archery season starts in NH tomorrow so I'll be on stand before 1st light. Saw an 8 pointer in velvet a couple of days ago wandering around the property so I may hold out to get a shot at him. I got two last season and still have meat in the freezer so one and done hunting for myself.

We need more like you, Terry.
Hunters in America are a diminishing crowd.
When the firearms season rolls around and I need to call on the big guns, I carry this (although not usually far):

Muzzleloader starts in early Nov for 10 days and then 3 1/2 weeks of gun season. We are heading south mid Nov so tighter schedule this year as we have waited until early Dec in the past. Just getting sick of the cold weather as we get into our 70's. There are a lot of deer in this area so usually see quite a few and my stands are set up along choke points to get within bow range.

I wish you a great season.
Florence is knocking on our door.
The wind and rain may keep me in tomorrow but if it's at all possible I'll be in a tree.
I won't get a shot from the couch.
