I have a T/C encore pro hunter stainless pistol in 25-06. I am really pleased with it and it shoots extremely well ( I would need the likes of a ransom rest to truly test it's accuracy) the recoil is very manageable for me. I chose 25-06 because in my mind it works well for deer and varmints. The stainless for durability. The Pro Hunter because it has a fluted barrel that just looks cool. I mounted a burris 2-7 stainless scope on it.
