Even price I'd probably go with the Ruger b/c S&W doesn't know a single thing about my encore so I doubt they know anything about the other TC products, but...

For $150 difference I'd probably go with the T/C.

I would strongly suggest a Bob Hart rifle. 700 Rem with the threads trued up, add a Timiny trigger set to 2#. Nice blue job on all the metal. Exhibition grade walnut stock with 24 lines to the inch hand cut checkering. Nice one piece Leupold base and rings and the top of the line Night force scope. Think I'd get it a 30-30! Remember what the scope people tell you about buying a scope, buy once!

I'm not dragging that through the woods. Far less will do just fine for hunting.

Sounds like to me, you found a great deal and made a fine choice for your intended purposes.

Seems like you've made a good selection for what you need. Go with it! I don't know if silencers are allowed for hunting in your state. A far as I know, they're not in my state.

Silencers are legal for hunting in both my state and your state:

The .308 Winchester is a really solid choice and I think you'll be very satisfied with it. Honestly, there isn't much on 4 legs this side of cape buffalo that you can't hunt with that cartridge.
For a good breakdown on how the .308 compares to the .30-06 and .300 Win Mag, check out:

The recent summer edition of Outdoor Life magazine...rated the Mauser M18 bolt rifle as a "best buy," costing $699. It is "robust and accurate, with a 308 caliber 5 shot group measuring .88 moa @ 100 yards."
