Yesterday we shot a heavy T/C custom-shop .308 Win. barrel (stainless, almost straight contour) at 100 yards and had some very nice results - as in sub 1/2 minute for five 168 Speer match bullets at 100 yards. 45.5 Varget, Win. primer and BHA brass. Rifle had a 4-16 Nikon Tactical (prototype on it in Badgers). Best group was 0.453". It was chambered in the custom shop and they left a nice heavy contour, but it is a factory available barrel and an out of the box Encore single-shot break-open action. Trigger is not the best I have shot in an Encore, could be lighter and smoother but the rig did OK. We will be shooting that combination out to 1000 to see how it works.
