What is the twist rate of that barrel?

Guessing a 1-9.
But it could be a 1-10.
If, it was designed for the sillywet game I would think a faster twist (like listed above), which would mean, it will easily stabilize and bullet weight you would want to use for hunting.

I would not recommend a rebated case in an Encore. If you go XP I think 284 will be fine..

For the encore I would look closer at something like a 7-08 or even taking rimmed Winchester 308 size brass to a 7mm

If I remember correctly, Doc Rogers had his 7mm BR XP-100 rechambered to .284, and later had it rebarreled to that same caliber by SSK. Maybe he will run across this and comment, or you can send him a PM.

I have owned in the past a T/C Custom shop 284Win 15" bbl.

It was accurate with sub-MOA accuracy at 100 yards.

I never had an issue with extraction, which kinda surprised me with that rebated rim case. However, I never had an issue.

Performance wise, I had a 280 AI barrel (actually two) in the Encore platform that outperformed the 284Win barrel by a decent amount. I would still prefer the 280AI over the 284Win in the Encore.

As mentioned, the XP-100 is easier to shoot accurately than the Encore, and is my preferred platform for specialty pistols over the Encore. Trigger is better too, on the XP-100.

However, in the XP-100, I much prefer the 7mm RSAUM over the 284 Win.
