    I learned about it from a Hunting DVD where all of the Hunters used the 30 TC / one of the Hunters dropped a 300 pound deer with it . So they must be pretty good .

    30/06 performance
    308 size cartridge
    308 recoil

    Doesn’t 308 check all those boxes?

    That looks like a ton of recoil. It’s total BS that this cartridge would have less recoil than .30-06 with the same projectile leaving the barrel at the same speed. Makes no sense. That it can do it with a shorter cartridge at lower pressure, sure, that’s possible. Wider, more efficient chamber, different neck shape, sure. But you’re gonna lose accuracy and recoil will be identical.

    Looks like sling was hitting him

    So loud and the shock to the shooter’s face is MUCHO crazy!

    If you slow down the video frame by frame you can see that the scope does in fact hit you in the face. That is likely why it feels like it is hitting you in the face.

    I don’t like the gun I would like a tc icon that would sweet

    I’ve read that recoil does not have a 1-1 relationship to muzzle energy. I can’t say I understand it fully, but it might relate to faster v. slower burning powder and they might differentiate between a single burst and a lesser push over a longer time frame.

    i really like the review any gun with a muzzle break is loud had a browning boss that was maybe a little help you need to get those foam ear plugs deeper into the ear canal i now use muffs just what i like i have hearing loss protect your hearing to everyone please again good review thinking of buying the same caliber

    Actually the claims aren’t impossible, but you’ve got to listen to the entire statement. It will level out with 30-06 performance when compared with standard 150 grain loadings of 06 ammo. Performance is nowhere near similar with more common 165 and 180 grain ammo 30-06 loads. It’s not as much a question of physics/gravity as it is modern powders, pressures and case neck angle working WITH those factors. The comparison ONLY works if the comparison is modern 30 T/C vs. antiquated 30-06.

    First of all, you can’t get sumpin for nothing; the claims are impossible. Unless dead ol’ Isaac N. was wrong about that equal and opposite action thing. Not improbable. IMPOSSIBLE for it to have the power of .30-06 with less recoil than .30-06, LET ALONE less recoil than .308. AND, it’s impossible to have the performance with less powder without boosting pressure – which is a bad idea. New chambering FAIL! Second, why in gawd’s name is your barrel so short?

  13. HayGlo on May 2, 2023 at 3:42 am

    Grandpa of the 6.5 cm to bad and for the Icon rifle TC needs to bring the 30 cal and Icon rifle back screw the junk compass I know people save money ,but then they turn around buy better stocks,triggers and scope mounts. icon its already there.

  14. Robert Bailey on May 2, 2023 at 3:43 am

    i’ve been shooting the encore for several years ..but i have never switch my barrel out ..i really like that short barrel and would like to get one ..where could i find one ? thanks

    Liked everything about the rifle except for the barrel. Its too short, and the muzzle brake will render the rifle almost useless unless you’re wearing ear plugs.
    I don’t like to wear any type of hearing protection while I’m hunting.

  16. kosmocookieduster on May 2, 2023 at 3:48 am

    Looks like quite a bit of recoil considering scope is coming close to hitting you in the face.

  17. pottyputter05 on May 2, 2023 at 3:51 am

    keep learning your ballistics.

  18. Michael Gerard on May 2, 2023 at 3:52 am

    My first rifle was a .340 weatherby mag because I had to have one. Now I won’t buy a gun that I can’t get ammo at the hardware store. Live and learn.

    .30 TC is a great cartridge and still a good choice today even though it never got super popular. I’m considering having a custom barrel chambered in this.

    Good review, I have been considering this cartridge for packing up steep mountains chasing whitetails.

  21. yooper_man on May 2, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Muzzle brakes are horrible and just add unnecessary cost and makes firearms load. Muzzle brakes tame heavy hitting cartridges, but the failed 30 TC isn’t punishing in the least.
