Your favorite length Encore Rifle barrel?

I have a 21" , 24", 26" and 28" Encore barrels.. I prefer the 21 incher and the 24 incher over the 26 and the 28's. They work just right hunting predators in the dark and walking through the deer woods... I'm sure some of you chuck hunters might like the longer barrels. My favorite 24 inch barrels., 22 Hornet, 22250, and the 3006! also like the 21 inch EAB 17 Fireball Encore barrel..

My favorite rifle barrels are all 24"...17 Fireball,.260 Rem, and .223. Keeps the balance and compactness of the Encore without sacrificing much performance.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Re: Your favorite length Encore Rifle barrel?

I had my 7mm-08 Prohunter cut down to 23"...it is still a tack driver @100 yards and is much easier to carry in the woods!

Got my invitation to Darrell's wedding in the mail today! No location on the invitation???

Re: Your favorite length Encore Rifle barrel?

350 rem mag and 357 max both 20 inchers from MGM
I also have a 22 inch 6.5 rem mag from MGM
I'm considering selling it though

It may be a poor choice of words but I am smart enough to understand what you meant.

That .350 Rem Mag must loosen your fillings. I have a 20in .350 Rem Mag in a bolt action and it is almost painful to shoot BUT is the best bear gun hands down!!!
