I find the magazine is it's one fault. It is plastic and you have to be careful how you load it to get it into the gun.....BUT.....it is accurate.DCabets28 said:I am not crazy about how the magazine protrudes on the Savage otherwise it looks very nice!!!!
This. The ONLY turkey gun I own that's lighter than my 870 20 gauge is my TC Prohunter 20 gauge. Mount a small red dot or lightweight optic and you'd have a nice light, nimble hunter. Only drawback would be reloading in heavy cover with the single shot.huntin-nut said:Since you have a reference to T/C in your posts - why not a 20 guage barrel for the Encore. I have one for mine and love it - very accurate and easy to shoot and in the Encore form is lightweight and compact so easy to carry and to shoot quickly.
1/2, 5/8 even 3/4 oz slugs are no prob to shoot out of a 20 gauge. He said he was gonna use it for close shooting you don't need max loads unless your blasted throught thick brush which prob isn't a good idea anyway.cmc5028 said:youth gun and slugs sounds like a recipe for a bruised shoulder.
