Aftermarket muzzleloader barrel for Contend

Just got one from VVCG for my Encore. Having a little
problem with the fit of scope base to barrel which can be
alleviated, but I would definitely recommend them. Both
inside and out, this Douglas barrel is spotless. I can see
absolutely no flaw in the bore at all. It has been very
professionally done by the work of both Douglas and
VVCG.

little stiff, but ya oughta see the precision
work on her!!! Will post later when I get

Re: VV contender prices.......

Last week Midway had two VV 50 cal. contender barrels ON SALE for $499.00 each.
Seemed awful high to me.
Lefty
ON SALE????? :shock: That's a hundred bucks MORE than
getting it straight from the horse with your own specs! AND
with the $35 scope mount to boot!

Got mine sighted in today. Things were a little rocky at first.
Tried shooting H777 in it and found the "crud ring" to be
totally unacceptable. It was very hard to run a spit patch
through the crud ring even after one shot in this new barrel.
Still had some Goex Clear Shot so shot a few rounds with
it. No crud ring. Unlike the T7 with shots all over the target,
150gr (actual weight) of Clear Shot behind a 200gr Dead
Center .40 saboted bullet with Win 209, had the bullet holes
tickling each other.
