Re: Mr Bullberry\'s opinion..
I am sort of new to the Long Range seen and need some opinions, I know you all have some....haha
I am very close to getting a new rig, it was going to be a Bullberry Rig....but now after reading this post I want your opinions.
I have settled on the 260 caliber for my rig.
I was going to get an encore, with a full bull barrel at 24 inches.
I want this rig for shooting Missouri deer at a max distance of 600+, usually closer to 400 yards. Shooting out of permanent fixed stands with shooting rails/tables etc. I dont care about weight, this will not be a pack rig.
I understand that because of recoil and pressures in the big and short magnums the encore is not a good choice, but what about the short, reliable 308 case in the 260 Reminton? (or other standard cases).
I have friends with VERY accurate Encores, and have read many rave reviews for the Encores, especially with Bullberry Barrels.
Bottom Line - What is the most ACCURATE rifle/rig for under a $1000 for a FINISHED rifle (not including optics), in a 260?
Thanks for all your help!
