Re: Encore Shooters

4 inch group at 400 is MOA, can't complain about that shooting factory ammo. You haven't even broken the barrel in yet. Good shooting. I love the Encores and I love the Berger VLDs. I've got 4 Leupolds with varmint hunter reticules. They are awesome. You can get custom dials for 65 bucks from leupold. Thou you should put 200 rounds down the tube and get it broke in before you crony it and order custom dials. Good luck, but you better hurry, Hunting season is almost over here in Florida! This weekend is the last weekend in Alabama.
Good luck,
Robbin

Re: Encore Shooters

Love the Encore and Contender. My 26" 7MM Rem. Mag barrel was a 1 1/2 MOA until I sent it out to Mike Bellm for a tune-up. Now I can consistently do 3/4 MOA with the 162 A-Max. Actually Josh Kistler did the work and it is the best $75 bucks I've spent on shooting gear. My '06 is a 1 MOA barrel and I am sending it to Mike to lengthen the throat for the 208 A-Max, and tune-up. Hope it comes back a 1/2 MOA.

Re: Encore Shooters

I went n shot it sunday morn. Tried dialing it up. I was 16 inches low @ 400yds so I dailed it up 64 clicks. Didn't hit target from saturday went n got rangefinder n bullets went back. Dialed it back 64 clicks shot it @ 100 yards about 2inches high I went out to 280yds. Just a little over 1inch group using the 300 reticle then backed up to 420yards sent three 2 were 3inch n one flyer don't know y dialing it up didn't work ?? this was @ 280yds
