TC Encore and long range?

I have a Encore with a 204 encore barrel and a 300win prohunter barrel I have not got out to shoot it yet.As fas as long range and the TC barrels how are they at long range shoots. Mind you I can reload.PS I will be using a Nikon Buckmaster 4-14x40mm BDC scope on the 300wm and a Bushnell banner 6-18x50mm on the 204. With a Nikon range finder.

The 300WM is capable of taking deer sized game out to 600 yards and beyond depending upon bullet choice. I would say that you could take game with it to as far as you can consistently shoot a 6" group. I would guess the 204 Ruger barrel would take coyote size animals out to 300 yards and rock chucks and smaller out a bit longer.

I need to clarify my question.I am asking more towards the TC encore for being accurate with those two rounds not so much the rounds themself.

Not sure about the factory barrels from TC.... but I shot my whitetail buck this year at 467yards with a 6.5x55 barrel from Match Grade Machine.

Dime size groups @ 100yards

Re: TC Encore and long range?

Just about all the factroy Encoe barrels I've delt with can easly be made to shoot close to the 1 moa range and some down close to the 1/2 moa range.

The encore can be made to shoot as well as any bolt guns for the first round shot but the gun has to be broken out of battery to reload and that kinda messes with the good grouping Ju-Ju.

Get a trigger job , replace the hinge pin with a tighter fitting unit and bed the forend.

I just fitted up a 300 win heavy barrel buled Encore for the guy that owns the bow shop up the road , did all te stuff mentioned above plus recrowned the barrel and installed a Sims recoil pad , his gun will shoot very close to 1/2moa at 200yds with factroy loaded Nosler ammo with the 200gr Accu-Bond.

Re: TC Encore and long range?

Can you still trade out barrels and use the same forend?
