Did you mean Mike Bellm ?? If so that guy more or less re wrote the score on Encores and Contenders. I have his springs etc on all of my triggers. A couple of people have been making hangers for Encore and Contender fore ends Bullberry barrels was one. Obviously taking off and putting on the fore end gives a different torque every time which is said can effect the fall of shot/accuracy. T/C tried and failed to cure this with their quick release attachment. No to be honest the idea worked, the engineering was c##p. I have modified the ones I have and they now work fine. No matter how well bedded, you are still going to need a small torque wrench to make sure the fore end is torqued to the same pressure. I have to admit all of my Encore barrels will shoot better than I am capable of. Proved it off bags with air release to the trigger. I will now wait to be shot down in flames

First try shooting it...if no problems don't try to fit it.

pillar bedding isn't one of my favorite fixes for any rifle, full length bedding with even barrel/wood contact works on some.

Most T/Cs shoot better than the shooter can hold without any bedding. Sincve the frearm is not directly connected to the action and mostly floats with the barrel, it acts merely as barrel weight.
