    Tell us a little about your encore, what caliber, factory or custom barrel? I have a custom barrel encore in 7mm Rem mag that I have shot out to 500 yards with decent success.

    Where are you? Do you have any trouble finding longer range areas to shoot? Which ammo? Even with a heavy barrel you've got a great shooting rifle in a manageable package!
