Most Accurate T/C Encore Barrel??????

Howdy all.
Would any of you have a recommendation for an ACCURATE after market T/C Encore barrel?
I am looking at a 280 Ackley. I've done some research but i'd like to know if anyone here has some field and target experience with them.

Thanks!!

Without stating the range, wind conditions, what the target is, what shooting style you use , and what weight you prefer I don't think you'll get a reasonable answer. You didn't even say if you're using the Encore as a rifle or a pistol.

I have a Rem 700 in 280 AI. It's a good cartridge. But so are the 7mm08, 270Win, 7mm Rem Mag and 30-06 which surround it for case capacity and bullet diameter. None of those are my most accurate rifles at any range, but they're all good for hunting. The more accurate rifles typically have unsuitable terminal ballistics or are impractical to carry.

i think the best encore custom barrel maker going right now is MGM. shorter wait and a great product. as far as being accurate most customs are if you do your part like breakin and reload.

Match Grade Machines MGM . I had heard nothing but GOOD about their barrels so I ordered a 15" SS by Shilen in 30-30AI for my Contender. Man will this barrel shoot. I have not found anything yet that will not shoot in it. Even my fire form loads with some old IMR 4320 powder I had around and some pulled 147 FMJ's from some military ammo would put 5 under 1" at 100 yards. Their prices are very good and the wait time is short for a custom barrel.
