First off, I'm new here...thanks for a great site. I'm looking for a good 308 that gives good accuracy. What the best choice for the $$$$? Has anybody had any luck with a TC Encore, I like single shots. I've had Remington 700s and had good luck with them. So now I'm in the market for a new rifle and just can't make up my mind...I need some help. Thanks

Check the FAQ. When Mel revamps it soon, it'll be even more thorough. Or you can search this forum, I'm sure there are two or three threads covering the exact same topic somewhere on the first page of the history.

If you are looking for cheap, I'd look at the H&R single shots (with heavy barrel) or better the savage 10FP or 12FV series of rifles. Updated FAQ will be coming soon.

I have an H&R in 45-70 and I like it(not as much as I like my Sharps!) I was just wondering if anybody has had good luck with the Encore. I have a Ruger in .223, I'm shopping for a 308 now. I'm thinking of getting a 700 ADL and camo it myself. What the difference in action/accuracy of an ADL, BDL, P? and such. Thanks

Well, there are several models of BDL and ADL, but none of them will be as accurate as the P because of the heavy barrel of the P. All ADL"s and BDL's have the sporter weight barrels on them. The VLS, VFS, and other varmint rifles should be just as accurate as the P.

I did some looking. I like the looks of the VSF and the VLS. I still want to hunt with it so I may go for the ADL, guess its all personal preference huh? Thanks!
