I recently harvested this beautiful cow elk
using my Thompson/Center Encore with your custom Rem 280 Ackley Improved
26" barrel. One shot - a little over 100 yards. Heart. She went right
down. 54.9 grains H4831. Hornady SST 162 grain. Rem 280 Nickel brass,
fire formed to this barrel. Fed 210 primer. I retrieved the bullet in
opposite leg hide. Below is a photo of the elk, my T/C Encore and me.
Grouse Mesa Outfitters near Chama, NM. Their offices are in Alamosa, CO.
Thank you for a beautiful barrel for my T/C Encore. I couldn't be happier!
