I am purchasing a Thompson Center Encore rifle for the Elk season where I live. I am also purchasing a .300 win mag barrell to go with it. Does anyone have any advice or opinion on this particular gun. Any advice for a scope..........
Yeah, I was recently looking at these too, and I'd like to hear what people think too. For a scope I'd probably go with a fixed power or a 3x9, given that your probably intending to go muzzleloading and are going to have shots in the 50-75 yard range, where high power is pointless.
I own an encore rifle with a 300 win mag barrle and the 209x50. I love it I shoot nosler balistic tips 150 grain and also have a round worked up for nosler partitions 150. It shoots great and TC is very easy to deal with if you have a problem. I currently have a 4-12 scope on both barrles. This year I shot a whitetail with the muzzle loader at about 120 yds. I shoot targets with the muzzle loader out to 200. One word of advice if you buy the 300 win mag barrell get it with a muzzle break, I didnt but the i sent it in to have one installed
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
