    While we're on the subject of Encores, I've heard that they are coming out with a "precision barrel" model.

    If your only use for it will be muzzleloading and money is much of a consideration..... I would honestly say no.

    That doesn't mean they are not very fine rifles, I own one and have owned a couple more. All good rifles even though it took quite an effort to turn one of them into a shooter (the one I still have).

    So far as pure muzzleloader use, there are a number of rifles that handle recoil better, handle a wider variety of projectiles well, tend to be less finicky overall, and cost less.

    If you are going to buy an Encore, I would wait to see what the Shot Show reveals in a week or so.

    I'll second UC's notion about not buying an Encore for just the muzzleloading aspect. Many new MLers to choose from that are a couple of hundred bucks cheaper and shoot very well. My Encore has more kick than any other MLer I shoot and shot developement was difficult. Just something to think about before you buy an Encore.

    Doc White found a bunch of brand new barreled actions for the White Lightning in .504 and the Whitetail in .410 caliber. Says there will be some great bargains on them......I've already emailed him.
