Hi everyone, Just joined and have a encore with 2 pistol barrels and several rifle barrels. I'm just wondering if anyone has a 6mm they shoot and how they like it ? Thanks

Welcome to the group, sorry (not) for your addiction, and I've loved the 6TCU since the first time I fired one. Wink

Honestly, I have all the barrels I want or could ever need..... wait, look, there's another!!

Welcome to the forum.
I suppose with the Encore, your 6mm has a bit more case than us contender shooters.
I love the .243 bullets and shoot them in my 6TCU and 6x223 barrels.
What barrels do you shoot 6mm bullets from?
I've found IMR 8208 XBR to be my powder of choice for my 6's.

Think twice...shoot once.

Hello and welcome. I shoot an 18" 6TCU carbine and a 6mm X 30-30. Both are on a G2 frame. They are fun to shoot and both have killed deer. As I've gotten older they are both the guns I like to carry because of weight and recoil. I have never felt undergunned with either of them. I do pick my shots carefully but I would do that with anything.
