Hey JJ, no they are not using Shilens barrels. Ed went to Spain just to help them out.

Oh and here is the link you were looking for.

Re: Bergara Encore Barrels

There are lots of aftermarket barrels for the Encore, some are chambered for some pretty hot cartridges. Just so you are aware, it this has any importance or not would be an individual thing, but placing any non-original barrel on a T/C voids the warantee. I was told that is the way it is, period. The factory determines which cartridges are appropriate for the Encore's locking system, lot's of cartridge designs are not compatible.

Re: Bergara Encore Barrels

for after market i would stay away from most of the hot magnums i might consider the the 7mm rem mag and maybe the 300 win mag the ultras are a no no in my book i just put a MGM heavy contour on my rifle frame in 243 win. so I'm not worried about it i think as long as you go at it and keep in sensible and try not to get the last FPS out of your loads you should be OK



if you want to build a real hot rod go with and bolt action that's alot stronger like a Remington or savage or some of the high quality one's out there now this my 2
cents for whats worth

Re: Bergara Encore Barrels

Bergara does not chamber anything more powerful than the 300WM. The steel is 4140 blued or 416R in stainless.
