Well , I seen this one the other day in a pawn shop.

I cant tell if its ever been fired , or even handled. Its 100%.

As I have said before....when I lose sleep over a gun, it usually ends up coming home with me, if it don't leave before I get back to it.

So I went back today and just walked up the owner , told what Id give , (done my homework) and was prepared to negotiate up a little... and he said "man your killing me"....he always says that. He knows me well.

He says "I'm closing in 30 minutes, lay the money down and get it outta here"

I was smiling from ear to ear.
I been wanting one of these for a long time, try finding a used one, (gunbroker , etc,) they are hard to find.

So I brought this one home...with plans for many barrels and grips.

Hope to get a range report on Monday.

Very nice. Here is mine in 25-06, with a Leupold Vari-X III 4 X 14-50. It shoots one ragged hole at 100 yds, and has taken antelope at over 400 yds. I've never needed a second shot, although I carry some on the stock.

That's a beauty Phil.

This being my first Encore setup, I'm excited to try some different barrels,
45-70 comes to mind.:)

Have you changed to other barrels and if so , what ya got?


The reputation of these ,for accuracy, is second to none.

No. I have considered going to something for varmints and medium large game. Maybe a 22-250.

I always wondered what shot a 25-06.
I remember going into stores during the ammo-drought and everything was sold out bare to the empty shelves.
...except for a few boxes of 25-06. I thought: "what gun is that for?"
I need to study up on it some more Text Yellow Font

A .30-06 Springfield case necked down to a smaller diameter bullet becomes a .270 Winchester. Necked down further, it becomes a .25-06 Remington.
Exactly. The 25-06,like many other common calibers, was originally a hand loaded "wildcat". It is a real screamer, and shoots very flat. It is almost as powerful as the belted .25 magnums, w/o the expensive belted brass, and can be hand loaded up to within a hair of their factory loads.

Almost all of the major manufacturers of bolt guns chamber the 25-06.
