I got no response [yet] from t/c so maybe you fella's can chime in on some data...
I am trying to reference twist rates of various barrels for the t/c encore. They are not listed in t/c's catalog in the specs of the barrels, nor on their website that I have seen. They are also not listed on the boxes of the barrels themselves. I have seen some listings in reloading books that state they used them, but those are only a limited selection of barrels. I find some for the rifles or hand guns but not sure if they are the same (say 30-'06 win handgun (15") barrel and a 30-'06 pro hunter (28").
Anyone have such info? I know I can find out what they are if I have the barrel, but I'm just would like to know what some are that I do not have [yet!].
mucho garcia in advance....

I had to call T/C to get the twist rate on my .223 barrel. (1:12 in case that's helpful. ;) )

All 6mm/.243 1:10
All 25 Caliber 1:10

Thanks for the info and yeah E. Arthur Brown makes some nice barrels - I pursued a 6ppc bull barrel from him a while back. Being they state "to the best of our knowledge" indicates t/c must not release/state this info in reference form. Interesting they use the same per caliber though...22 hornet same as 22-250.

Not sure if anyone else wanted them but T/C finally added a link (http://www.tcarms.com/firearms/chart_encore.php) now that lists the twist rates.
not sure of their formating of Encore, Encore Pistol, and Encore Rifle. Seems like it would be pistol or rifle, and include the muzzleloader/shotguns into their own or the rifles, but anyhow, here is what they listed, in case any one is interested.
They have released their 85MB 2008 catalog - have not looked to see if they list them in there yet
