    OK even easier then have them make you a barrel for your new TCC, chambered in 3SF or 8.8SF!
    Why don't we go to school and work on the weekends and take the week off!

    A relative has a encore and has several different barrels.
    I shot the 7mm-08 and was surprised at the accuracy, definitely a medium range shooter and light weight.
    Hope yours shoots as well.

    Wanted something a little lighter to carry on long long walk ins. The sig 3000 weighs 15#.

    That reminds me that I need to pick up another Encore. A buddy of mine has a 15" pistol barrel in .375 JDJ, and it's literally a blast to shoot. Only ran a few 235s through it so far, but I bet 270s and 300s are interesting....[:0]

    From the corn pile to the house shouldn't be that far.

    Screw that 375 JDJ. I am still looking for part of my wrist that was torn off, shooting that caliber[xx(] I shot it twice and sold it. I still have nightmares about it.

    The Sig 3000 is my Deck Gun. I have 6 out of the field and one at the hunting plantation with it. No use to carry it off the deck they are DRT .. all neck shots. [:D] 250 yd. Easy shot.

    Might know you would pick the hot-rod caliber. [:D] My 25-06 is a single shot too, Ruger #1. Enjoy!
