Re: How about a TC Encore?

I still bed them and actualy make little aluminum pillers. I like the idea of their being a solid part to fit against the barrel , is it needed , most likely not but its one less thing for me to worry over , I have OCD and things like that wil drive me nuts.

I use Playdough to build little dams to keep the bedding compound from migrating where its not needed. Make sure that you use planty of release agent on the barrel lug and front of the frame in case any works its way out , also its a good iead to put release agent all on the inside of the areas you don't want it , makes it alot easier to get out later.

On the synthetic forends on guns where a little exta weight isin't gonna be a problem I fill the entire forend with compound to stiffen it up , just use 3-4 stripps of duct tape on top one another to make a gap ahead of the forend screws

Re: How about a TC Encore?

Could you post a picture of the bedding job?
Or email me a couple.
I have cut everything loose under the stock except for where the two pillars touch. This is my first Encore so I am learning as I go.
Thanks - Steve

Yes, I would like to learn to pillar bed em myself......
I got a Encore with the ML barrel and a 22-250 ProHunter barrel right now.

I am thinking of getting a 7mm or .300 Win next just trying to figure out if I spend the extra $300 on a "custom" barrel vs. a Prohunter or TC Custom Shop if it is "really" necassary or needed.

Re: How about a TC Encore?

I have an Encore in .243AI with a Bullberry barrel. 26" long, .850" at the muzzle and 1 in 14 twist. It prints 1/4" to 3/16" five round groups (@4350fps w/ 55 BTs) if I do my part. The stock set came from gunstocksinc.com and is the Stinger in brown laminate. I had to cut the barrel channel to fit the barrel diameter and route out the place for the Bullberry hanger bar.... Well worth the effort for a gun that looks and shoots great.
