I think you'll actually be pleased with both the scope and the barrel. Tasco is no great scope, mind you, but should do the job well enough to determine the accuracy potential of the barrel. As for the barrel, be very surprised if you don't get the equivalent of any 308 sporter bolt gun. Let us know how it shoots. Who knows? May be a 308 in my future, after all.

That is a nice looking rifle tex. I had a Contender once, but never tried the Encore. There is just something appealing about single shots - maybe it's because they are short overall, in spite of having a long barrel. The Contender I had was a .22 Hornet and it was a tack driver. In fact, it was more accurate than my Ruger 77 Hornet. I'll bet that .308 will be a shooter.

By coincidence, that is exactly the way things worked out between my 14" Hornet Contender and my Ruger Hornet rifle. Still have the Contender Hornet and will never sell it, but the Ruger is long gone. Wasn't even close. Replaced the Ruger with a CZ 527 Hornet and it will keep up with the Contender, very nicely. Wonderful rifle.
