Re: custom encore barrels

Match Grade Machines (MGM) makes very good barrels. I have two that I'm very pleased with.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Re: custom encore barrels

I have a MGM in 25-06 with a custom contour, Bullberry also makes barrels in custom contours if you want a barrel with TC factory contour try Eabco.

Re: custom encore barrels

I have three E. A. Brown Encore barrels... They are about the same price as a T/C barrel.. I have one custom one I had them make and I purchased two of there Standard custom barrels that they have on the shelf... , 17 Hornet, 17 Fireball (custom), and the 6.5 BRM. All are shooters and have had no problems with the accuracy of any of them...I like there Encore mounts too...Custom barrel runs about $320.00...

Re: custom encore barrels

I just received an MGM 17 WSMRF barrel. What a nice barrel....Looking forward to scoping her and getting her out there for the late predator season coming up...Also looking forward to shooting some chucks with her starting when the weather gets warmer.. Probably in my neck of the woods in March...
