TC Encore

I want one but I am skeptical of their accuracy. I am wanting to get a few barrels and use this as a multi purpose gun. I already have a long range shooter. I was wondering if these are a 1 moa rifle or pistol.

    One of my hunting buddies started off with one Encore in 300 mag. He was so impressed by 3/4 moa that he got another in 338 mag. Also sub moa. Then he sold off all his other rifles and now he has only Encores and 6 or 12 top ends. Go figure.

    So go for it !
    ...The resale on these is so good that if you don't like it, it will resale for almost retail.

    Re: TC Encore

    I haven't hunted with a long gun for 8yrs now...it's all pistol for me.
    My Contender and Encore pistols are more than capable.
    Here's my 7-30 Waters:




    This Lope doe was @ 350 yds.



    This is my 6.5x284



    Here's the 223 @ 250yds



    Here's the 256 Win Mag @ 110yds



    Here's a small group picture...I have barrels that aren't shown



    This was my first group with the 6BR@ 100yds...I don't think I'm changing this load




    So yes, they are more than capable.
    And I'm not even that good...wait till Ernie posts some pics of his accomplishments!!!!
    Or you can go to the Specialty Handgun section and check them out.

    Thank you for the replies. I think I will be getting one. Are those custom or factory barrels?

    I have a 375jdj that is sub MOA and a 50b&m Alaskan that shoots just over that. Both are customs that JD Jones built for me. They may not be as accurate as a custom bolt pistol but I have no reservations using them at reasonable distances.

    Just finished putting a 7 mag together and it shoots below MOA with a TC barrel. Check out Bellm TC site he has numerous parts to really bring about all the accuracy the barrel has to offer. I use it as a truck/ATV gun for targets of opportunity. Dave
