info on Encore barrel


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I'm looking to purchase a centerfire rifle barrel for my Encore ML. Besides T/C who makes barrels for the Encore? I want a bull or varmint weight, blue or SS makes no difference. Any experience with T/C or after market barrels would be helpful. I'm interested in 6mm Rem, 25-06, or 22-250 cals only. Real interest is in a barrel not in the merits of one cal or the other. Thanks, Bill

Probably the list is most expensive to least.
Several others but that is a good quick list. Check out eabco's falling block single shots while you are there. Don't know much about them other than what he has to say about them on his web site, but they look pretty cool. Low pressure rounds only with his design though.

Don't forget a stop by Bellm's if you want to get the trigger where you want it. http://bellmtcs.com/store/ He's the only one I know of that has a full selection of trigger springs and how to instructions that you can download.

Dont overlook Beartooth forum member David White. David has done some work for us and it is first rate. Our most accurate TC barrel is the 17 Hornet he reamed for us.

Darn, you guys beat me to both good answers!

I'd go with a barrel from David White, or Mike Bellm....in that order. If off-the-shelf is just fine for what you are needing, you can get lots of different barrels from Midway or at www.Thompson-Barrels.com .

I have a good 26" heavy .22-250 blue encore barrel. It shoots lights out with 55gr Gamekings and IMR 4064. It has probably had 100 rounds shot through it. It is Scoped with a nice Burris 4.5x14. I just don't use it much and might be willing to part with it. Send me a private message if you are interested.

encore barrels

I bought both of my Encore barrels "aftermarket" after getting the frame first. One is a 250/3000 barrel that is 20" and the other is a 204 Ruger bull barrel. One is stainless and the other not. Both have worked flawlessly and have all the accuracy I desire for the sighting system (the 250 has a Williams peep and the 204 is scoped for long range varmints). The 250 barrel came from the T/C Custom Shop and the 204 came from a local sporting goods store.
The bottom line is that from my experience you should have no problems.

MGM Match Grade Machine makes all of my barrels now.

I have had a barrel on order from Bullberry since September. I called a week ago and they said that it would probably be ready in July.

If EABCO doesn't have it on the shelf then you are looking on a 3 month wait minimum.

Same with SSK.

MGM usually has my barrel made and shipped in a week to ten days. Most importantly they make them EXACTLY the way I order them.

That is very good info!
The only thing I've ever bought from EABCO was a custom shop 7mm magnum bull barrel with the rifle stock that goes with it. That's an off the shelf purchase and it came quick.
I will check out MGM for my next barrel.

Absolutely the finest Encore barrels made! I have 5 pro hunter barrels made by t/c and they fail in comparison to Match Grade Machine barrels. And Like Stubshaft said, they make them exactly the way you WANT them made! But, be prepared to pay for what you order, they are not cheap if you get all the bells and whistles!!
