Thinking of building a Encore in 7mm-08. Other than stainless and going with the shortest barrel to get good accuracy. What barrel, brake(if needed) grip, or other options/mods ? Pictures of your setup would be helpful.

Theres mine. If a full time hunting gun, id consider pachmayr rubber if you could find it. I dont need a brake on it. Lotta options and decisions,Too many to list. You could brake one and get by with a riflescope also.

Barrel length won't affect accuracy as much as velocity, which could be related. I had a 10" 7-30 Waters barrel that would shoot lights out, but was slow as molasses in January. Went to a 13" and gained about 300 fps. With the 7-08 I would want at least 13" or more if you don't mind the size of the package.

What are your typical hunting distances?

I have a 15 inch factory barrel and really like it. I'm using 140 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips in mine. No brake.

I have a buddy that has a factory Pro Hunter SS Barrel with a Leopold base and rings. New brass and bullets that could be had very reasonable.
