Encore gets HOT after second shot

Anyone ever have this trouble. When trying to sight in a Encore with a T/C custom barrel the barrel would get so hot after the second shot you could not touch the barrel. I tried 3 different factory loaded ammo with the same results. You actually have to wait 5 minutes or longer between the 2nd and 3rd shots or the group will open up to 4 or 5 inches at a 100 yards. Any ideas?

I have 7mm Mag, .308 and 22-250 barrels. No problems. Who made your barrel and what caliber?

Re: Encore gets HOT after second shot

Never had any problems with any of my Encore barrels either but I'm not shooting anything bigger than 7mm-08. I'd contact TC customer support before shooting any more.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Re: Encore gets HOT after second shot

"Due to our restructuring of the T/C Custom Shop we are temporarily halting our custom shop barrel process so that we can evaluate and improve it. We are currently focusing on completing only those barrel orders that are underway, and we are not accepting new barrel orders at this time. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you."

All the "old" barrels worked just fine... Want to bet its another nail in the coffin for TCA?

T/C+S&W= Fail

S&W has ruined the T/C name and product. T/C needs too be sold to small company or investor and brought back to it`s traditional roots.

Re: Encore gets HOT after second shot

I have a .338 Federal from the now defunct custom shop in a taper barrel and i do not have any issues with gross heat on the barrel. I really like this caliber!!!
