Just trying to direct those of you looking for a killer T/C Encore set-up to the classified "barrels" section of the forum. Does not seem like it gets much attention. Happy Holidays to you all and yours.
Yes! I have the 445SM in a shorter 12" barrel and a 22" rifle barrel shooting everything from 250gr. to 315gr. cast bullets and it is a great hunting round out to 150/175 yards. It hasn't met a deer or hog yet that could stand up to it!
It was brought to my attention that I listed the scope as a "VX-lll" and not as "VX-3" like it shows on the box and scope bell ring. The scope is a new model VX-3 and not the older VX-lll. I apologize for the error. Happy Holidays to all.
