I am trying to locate an TC Encore stainless with composite stock for a reasonable price. Seems everyone wants $600-$700! How does the Omega compare, or is the Encore worth the price? All opinions are appreciated.
you get the same quality barrel as the encore and less money. I do own a black dimond. in a 50 cal. and it shoots as strait as my freinds. The new omega I think is a better gun because it gives you two inches of barrel without giving you a longer gun. they say that its giving you about three hundred fps. more. I am going to buy one next month and will give a report on how it shoots.
I just prefer the fit and feel of the Encore over the Omega. I was just at the sporting goods dealer yesterday and I'm thinking of getting the Encore shortly as well. I was also thinking of the new Savage II, but man that gun is very muzzel heavy!!
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
