Well, I just did the math. To build an Encore barrel the way I would want it would cost about $550 when all was said and done.

So, not quite the less than half I had originally thought. But still, about half the price of a BFR.

The cost of a barrel is cheap vs a whole gun. A fifty has really good potential as a big dangerous game backup and for that id want a few more shots but id bet u could run that encore at a higher velocity outta that 12" barrel. Double tap lists loads out of a smith for 400gr at over 1800 fps. I bet u should be able to run over 2000 outta that barrel?!?! Id love to see what u could do

No dangerous game in my parts, so it's more about the want than a need.

I just like guns. I like cartridges. I like collecting and playing with both. Whether the target or game require it is trivial to the joy of having and shooting as many different gun/carrridge combinations as possible.

Which is the allure of the BFR.

I have Encores. I've never owned a BFR.

Zee, I think you should go with the BFR and if it turns out you don't like it I will give you $550.00 for it and you can get the encore barrel. PROBLEM SOLVED. LOL

Get the BFR, Zee. You won't regret it. They are so accurate out of the box that they are a joy to work with.

Why stop at 50 cal? Y'all know there's a .620 JDJ, right?





Who wouldn't want to fire a 1050 grain cast bullet out of a handgun?
