I had a contender with several barrels for quite some time, and now have two encores with a half a dozen barrels.
They do have a learning curve compared to most other handguns, and they are a bit ungainly when carrying, but they are excellent hunting handguns.
My 15" .308 win barrel is obnoxious, my brother's 15" 270 win barrel is even worse.
If I could have just one 15" barrel for hunting in an encore it would be either 260 rem, 6.5 creedmore, or 7mm-08 rem. they have the best balance of downrange performance, usable case capacity, and tolerable recoil.
