    Hy, I am Claudio from Italy

    What kind of accuracy can I expect from an Encore rifle in 22-250 with a good scope? (5 shots group @100 mt or 100 yd with handloaded ammo)

    I am looking for an TC ER with Stainles Steel barrel .

    Thanks to all

    Ciao C

    Claludio, i have been shooting a encore .223 and can get 1/2"(12mm) groups at 100 yards. it is very accurate, for reloading go to Mike Bellum's site and there are some good articles on reloading for encore rifles.Craig

    My Encore 22-250 with the heavy stainless barrel (not a PRo-hunter) will shoot half MOA clear to 600 yards with 50 Nosler BT.
