Nice! I have a rifle barrel in 9.3x74 for my encore.

What are you planning on hunting with it?

i have a double rifle and an encore hand gun in 9.3x74r cal.the double rifle i bought to hunt in Namibia as they dont allow hand guns,the scope sighted encore hand gun i bought to hunt in south africa for dangerous game.in 2014 i hunted hippo but found out that the airline to fly into the country from joburg no longer allowed hand guns as they did in 2005 and 2007,so i had to use the double.took hippo,sable,and a cape buffalo bull.the encore ive only taken an oryx in texas at 129 yards,one shot clean through,using the woodleigh hydro ststic solid.my plan was to go for another elephant with the 475 as the main gun and the encore as back up but with all the covid problems and im 82 now it doesnt look like ill make it,to much bull shit going on.time will tell.
 
My 9.3 chapuis double is my favorite rifle I own. I bought the encore barrel to test the round and see if I wanted to buy my double. My only encore pistol barrel is a 510 GNR from Reeder Gun works. I hope you are able to make it back over for a elephant. Just finished a safari where I backup a buddy on his elephant. The 9.3 platforms have become my favorite hunting cal. So far my wife hasn't started looking at doubles but at some point I expect to have to track down a 9.3 double for her.
