This is the SSK ENCORE shop mule in 500 S & W Magnum with one of the cartridges. The cow elk was taken on 11/23/02 with a single shot at about 40-50 yards which did massive wound damage. She was down within 10 yards and dead mere seconds from impact of the 325 grain Speer at 2000 FPS.
A bull barreled encore with vent rib T’SOB is available in big bores (over 40 caliber) only. This one is a 500 S&W Magnum which is rapidly becoming popular.
The SSK T’SOB for the 500 S & W revolver is now available.It requires one hole to be drilled. The T’SOB has NEVER had a failure when mounted by SSK. “T” stands for TOUGH.
It is unmatched for strength and versatility of mounting.
The photo of the black gun–yep, we can make yours black too; shows the mount itself. The complete gun with T’SOB and scope mounted handles quite well and scope weight dampens recoil considerably.
10″ Encore velocity of the Factory Cor-Bon is 275/1761, 400/1843 and 440/1702 FPS.
