I guess I was being too subtle in my sarcasm. Jrkrk asked if there were "rumors" and I was starting the rumor.Tim50 said:What is a 358TC and will it be offered in an Encore barrel?
Well, T/C would have to know by now that shooters think the Encore trigger as it comes from the factory is less than ideal. The Contender and Encore would have to be close to their biggest money makers; their R&D dollars might be better spent on improving their proven design than in coming up with another bolt action that isn't that accurate, is too expensive and doesn't distinguish itself much from what is already available.They may do better to lighten up the Icon and offer the short action as a 20" barreled carbine and do some dressing up on the Encore, like maybe checkering and a schnoeble forend again.
Savage has "been playing" with smokeless ML for at least 7 or 8 years now. I will have to say that they are the real deal. I love mine.Kurt said:I read that savage was playing with smokeless powder muzzle loaders,
maybe tc will go this way also ?Kurt
