The proper cartridge for each barrel is clearly marked by its standard industry designation on the top left side of each barrel. Barrels chambered for standard cartridges should be used with high quality commercially manufactured ammunition with a packaging and head stamp designation that corresponds exactly to the barrel marking. If you have any questions concerning the proper ammunition for your Encore, call or write the factory. Do Not fire the firearm!
