Re: Which do You Prefer? Encore or Contender
I prefer the Encore and shoot in it a number of calibers from .17 HMR to .260 to .50 cal. ML. I shoot both rifle and pistol barrels and find the little extra weight to be beneficial in the larger calibers in terms of balance and recoil. With the Encore, I have many more of my favorite calibers available to me such as .243, .260, 7mm-08, and the ML.
The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.
