xphunter and sdhandgunner suggested H4895 with 120 and 140gr nosler bt's. well, i tried the 120gr nosler with 40.0gr of h4895 and it shoots great in my 15" encore. that is a light load but was very accurate. i'll bump up the charge and experiment more when i get time.
no problem, hope it serves you well, and sounds like it may. you could tweak around with it a little more after season if you wanted. you may find that little changes in seating depth, or powder charge will get those groups even smaller. if not, just over an inch is great for a handgun in my opinion.
