    Dropped off my 30-06 Encore barrel at Mechanical Accuracy today. Hopefully have it back next week. Getting it cut to 18.625", threaded, and a muzzle break built for it. I won't want to shoot that joker with open muzzle. 18" 30-06 on a single shot rifle, dang!

    Hey Dustin, I went and shot my .308 today without hearing protection. Most beautiful sound I almost didnt hear.

    Very nice to hear!! I got my TAB cover in on Monday and hopefully will pick my 30-06 barrel up on Friday. I thought I had everything I needed to shoot it this weekend, but the scope rings I bought ended up not fitting. I got them sold off and now I'm waiting on the correct rings to get it all finished up. Maybe the following weekend!!

    Nice... Are you still building up a .308? Would you shoot your can on a AK47? I hadn't even thought about that until today and have never heard of anyone that did it.

    I wouldn't trust an AK. Guys to it, but the mounting options can be kinda weird. Factory AK threads can be iffy and you'd have to move the front sight base back to properly thread. Plus the barrels are pretty thin normally and may not work with standard 308 threading, 5/8-24 TPI.

    My TITAN will eventually go on a 338 Lapua Mag, but it will be pulling 30-06 duty for a while on my Encore.

    Finally got the correct scope rings in today. I ended up going with the 3/4" Burris XTR rings. All I need now is my barrel back from Mechanical Accuracy! I can't wait. I set up the 223 barrel and mocked up the scope and rings and I think I'm going to like the way it turns out. When I saw it all together I wanted it BAD, haha.
