This is our 500th. BARREL STUB that we have produced since the mid 1980's and this includes BARREL STUBS for the T/C Contender, T/C Encore, T/CR and the N.E.F. / H&R single shots. In 2006, we received a US PATENT for our BARREL STUBBING process....

Here is a spec list on this new T/C Encore -

BARREL STUB...

Shilen Select Match Grade barrel / #7 barrel contour / 1-14" twist rate...

Chambered for the 243 Winchester - MATCH...

Bellm heavy duty locking bolt spring...

Bellm oversize hinge pin...

22" barrel / 24" overall barrel length with brake...

Muzzle Brake...

Custom stock set - forend pillar bedded...

Trigger adjusted to 15 oz....

Custom scope base...

Burris Signature Zee rings w/nylon inserts...

Leupold 6.5X-20X-50mm - PREMIER RETICLE...

With the customers dies and brass, headspace was set to .002 and the barrel was set to protrude through the STUB for a barrel to frame clearance gap of .002 as well...

We will be doing the load development on this rifle as per customers request. Targets wil be posted after load development is complete...













Any questions, just ask!

Glad you guys like the pictures - thank you...

I just finished a 221 Fire Ball a couple of weeks ago but never had the time to take pictures of it. I had also cut a rim counterbore for the use of 357 Maximum brass for a 221 Fire Ball - Rimmed. Reports back from the customer said that Hornadys 50 gr. V-MAX was producing consistant groups of 1/4" for 5-shots at 100 yards when fired from a bench....

After 2-days of shooting, I finally have two loads that were developed for the BARREL STUBBED 243 Winchester shown in the above post...

One thing that I learned was that this gun does not like flat based bullets nearly as well as what it does boat-tail bullets...

Second, with the barrels twist rate of 1-14", this barrel also does not like bullets over 75 gr. in weight. That's perfectly all right though as the customer stated that the heaviest bullets he would be shooting was 70 gr...

Target #1 / load data:


CASE: W-W 243 Winchester - MATCH PREPPED

PRIMER: Federal 210 MATCH

POWDER: VARGET / 45.2gr

BULLET: Nosler 55 gr. Ballistic Tip

VELOCITY: 3,822 fps.

.......................................................................................................

Target #2 / load data:


CASE: W-W 243 Winchester - MATCH PREPPED

PRIMER: Federal 210 MATCH

POWDER: VARGET / 42.4gr.

BULLET: Nosler 70 gr. Ballistic Tip

VELOCITY: 3,707 fps.

.......................................................................................................

Target #3


.......................................................................................................

All targets were measured outside to outside minus bullet diameter...

Chronograph data was measured at 15 ft. from the muzzle and was an averaged reading of 5-shots...

As a side note here though, I don't know of anyone else out there that likes a 243 Winchester and more than I do, as far as non wildcat cartridges go but, if this were my gun, even though it shot as well as what it did, I would have set it up for a "rimmed" cartridge and based it off the 307 Winchester case. This is just my own personal thoughts and opinion. I do however think that the customer this gun is going to will be more than pleased with the results that were achieved with this particular gun. I will have to admit that in all honesty, I did not expect this gun to shoot as well as what it did. I was expecting 3-shot groups to be hovering around the 1/2" to 3/4" mark but, when they started going into 1/4" groups, I was very suprised to say the least ....

D-S...you da man !!!!!

That is awesome accuracy for a .243 Win. The best I have achieved out of my Weatherby Vanguard in .243 Win is .7" @100m using Remington 80gn bullets and AR2208 (Varget).

Keep up the good work mate...you are achieving admirably.

Cheers, Vince

D-S, if that's the best you can do...

Honestly you've shown us some great looking work and are obviously getting great results! Thanks for sharing!
