I got an Encore a couple of years ago and love it. I have a 243 and 50 cal barrel for it, both shoot great.

I dont have much use for a single shot, especially not at the same price that I can buy a good Bolt gun for!

Encore. 30.06 I really like the weight and length of this rifle. Very few times have I ever needed a second shot and then it was impatience that caused it.

I love my TC Encore. I have a 50 cal ML barrel and a 243 barrel. My 243 is the most accurate rifle I have.

What he said but I didn't get the .243 until after the season closed so I haven't shot it yet. If things go as planned, that will change tomorrow.

I have to and not bragging but in my 30 some tears of deer hunting. I have killed well over A 100 deer and have only shot 2 or 3 twice. A single shoot just make me really concentrate on the shot. I can almost reload my NEF as fast as a bolt gun if need be.

I have two NEF, one 243 and a 30-06. I have killed several bucks withe the 30-06. I also have an Encore with several rifle barrels. My two favorite barrels are the 25-06 for the long range stands and the 45-70 for the thick stuff with the close shots.

I love my .223 Encore - and the ability to add other calibers by simply changing barrels is a real plus and cost savings. Course, I also love my AR, so it's more like the best of both extremes for me - single shot vs semi-auto.

89MONTERO:

I had a 45-70 in the NEF single shot, good gun but it was brutal to shoot! I still have a 22-250 in the NEF. I bought an AR-15 and no longer need it.
If anyone is looking for one send me a PM.
$150 with the scope rail
