I have an Encore with the 50 cal mz barrel and got the itch for a rifle barrel and heavily considered the .308 but since I have a 30-06 and small kids that might eventually need a gun I bought a .243 barrel earlier this year and can't wait to have her sling lead at a whitetail. Here she is with both barrels.

.50 caliber


.243

Best of luck to you.

I've had one with a .50 cal and a 7mm-08 barrel for several years and have just now found what I think is the secret - for me - to getting decent accuracy. I sent the gun off to get the headspace checked/adjusted and get the forend bedded. Between that and handloads with the right ammo, I think I'm on the right track.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Encore is one of the coolest, if not the coolest, guns going. I've just been really frustrated with mine many times - almost to the point of making a boat anchor - and would encourage you to keep at it until you're satisfied.

Again, good luck!
