I’d trust this guy’s opinion that’s where I’d start
That’s my thinking too. The CVA Scout had a 14” barrel for pistol calibers but was 10-11” barrels for 243 and 300BO. Seemed backwards to me. Really though more than once of getting the Scout in 44 cut down, but with my luck it would have messed it up.
If I can, I will get either a 45LC or 41mag in 8/9” when I get around to it.
A buddy has an Encore and I had a G2. Plusses, you don't have to open them to reset the trigger. Minus, IMHO trigger not as crisp
MGM only makes them for the G-2 frame.
I am not sure about Bullberry or SSK
Yes that’s what I’m after sorry I didn’t make that clear
No need to apologize. I am sure you can find a G-2 frame with some diligence
Of different calibers but the old 44 in a pistol leigh barrel is hard to beat. I would consider 300 Blackout over a 30 wcf with barrel length under 12 inch.
What leigh is the barrel
I’ll do 14 inches I’m sure
Gatdang that 357 herrett sounds like it would be a dandy deer getting cartridge.
I agree. I have several G1 frames with adjustable triggers which are much, much better than the trigger on my one and only Encore.
I understand the current generation Contender has the same style trigger as the Encore.
My 221 Rem FB (Bullberry barrel) and 22 Hornet Contender carbines are a couple of my most accurate rifles.
I'd rather have 10" barrel in pistol cartridges or a carbine set up. I have a 7mm International Rimmed Super 14 barrel that worked well when I was shooting IHMSA silhouette but not convenient to shoot otherwise. But, this is kind of personnel choice.
Cartridge choice is also a personnel preference. Just about anything Contender capable will work well in a Contender.
The nice thing about the Contender and Encore is there are lots of options out there.
Also Encore Barrels
The Encore is a much more capable platform capable of chambering all standard .30-06 class cartridges and limited use of light Magnums such as the 7mm Remington or .300 Winchester Magnum. Extended heavy use in the Magnum class will cause frame stretching at some point.
The Encore does offer one of the very best modern inline muzzleloaders available. The tradeoff for the Encore is a sub-par out of the box trigger but eminently servicable.
My son has the encore inline muzzleloader
243 in cva is 14 inch.
I was talking about the 243. LOL!
Sorry, the ad I was showed had the 243 and 300BO at the shorter barrel length. I never had the 243, only the 357mag and 44mag and 300 BO and 50calBP. Just seemed weird the rifle calibers were shorter than the pistol caliber offerings. And I wrongly assumed the 243 was a shorter barrel like the 300BO.
Still, every one of them shot great. Son has 357 that was reamed out to 357Max and it’s his Southern Illinois corncruncher taker. Stupid accurate with 2x scope on top. He still has my 44 and 50cal, having taken deer with both.
Too much fun for a $325 pistol.
And as anyone with a T/C knows, collecting barrels is an addiction.
