Re: Pressure Limits In Encore

It is my highest suggestion that you speak with JD Jones at SSK industries. He builds all of my hand cannons, and probably knows more about what an Encore can handle than anyone, and is very easy to deal with. His website is www.sskindustries.com

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, who's face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

Re: Pressure Limits In Encore

I have an SS Encore barrel from VVC in 7 STW. So far I've run 123 rounds down the barrel. No broblems with this barrel at all.

Then again I'm not trying to hot rod it either. What I'm looking for is accuracy. And with this tube it likes them warm, not hot.

When I looked on the VVC website it listed the 7STW as suitable for ony the bolt action. I will definitely be looking into one when I get ready to build mine.

The 7mm STW should be fine in the Encore as long as the frame and mounting pin are in good shape.

Good SHooting!!!
