I was on the market for a new barrel for my encore and found blued encore with 30-06 scoped (2-7x TC scope) barrel and two more barrels .308 and .410/45.
The deal was too good to pass it. I got it a few weeks ago and tried a few times but nothing serious.
Today I decided to go regardless it was drizzling. Cabin fever was hitting me.
I am pleased with the group I got at 100 yards, considering that I was using the cheapest Winchester 30-06 150gr power point that I bought in Walmart.
If I end up installing Burris 3-12x on it and get a muzzle brake and use some better ammo, I guess it will be even better.
Hopefully, the weather will get better in this part of Ohio so I can try it out with groundhogs.
Any advice on what muzzle brake would be good for it?

Nice shootin'. That will turn them inside out! I think you would like the Burris 3-12 as well.
Great shooting! I agree the 3-12 would help you some, but that's not bad!!!

Thanks! The first 10-20 rounds it was not easy to be really precise but I am glad how fast I started being efficient handling that recoil. I definitely want to get muzzle brake for it and will probably take 3-12x from my 7-08 and put it on this one. That is just a thought but for now, I am good as is.
I use the Burris 2 x 7 on my 30/06 Encore. Larger field of view makes it quicker to get on target for hurry up shots. I like the Burris 3 x 12 and have one on my 25/06 Encore, but the 2 x 7 fills the bill on the 30/06. I use a Magnaport on this gun in the Dual Traps configuration. It controls muzzle flip which is its purpose, and also tames some of the recoil.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Sawfish,
