Here's Why They're Accurate:
Precision Barrel Blanks - An EABCO barrel blank is precision gun drilled from the best Chromoly and Stainless steel alloys. Bore dimensions are reamed consistent to airgauge within .0002" (2/10,000ths) of proper bore dimension. These are then Two-Pass button rifled in the various twist rates we offer to suit particular accuracy requirements. These blanks are the foundation of our process.

One at a Time Barrel Making - True, center-to-center barrel turning at a rate that minimizes stress while keeping the bore in the middle. True, center-to-center chamber reaming insures centering and linear alignment of the chamber with the bore. Each chamber's headspace is checked and confirmed with gauges. True, center-to-center 11ø target crown, applied after finishing, insures that bullets exit the barrel with perfectly even gas pressure. (You can tell an EABCO Accuracy Barrel by the bright metal crown).

Chambering Philosphy - We try to offer our TC Accuracy Barrels® in chambers with the best potential for accuracy. We don't ride the outer edges of the frame's capacity (no big magnums, short magnums, etc.). And we lean toward chambers and twist rates that are already proven accurate.

Free Bore Paste - Bore Paste assures sufficient cleaning of carbon and copper fouling for the quickest and most trouble free barrel break-in as well as keeping your barrel match accuracy clean. It's the choice of serious shooters....Complete Instructions Included.

    Beautiful TC barrel. After your break in recommendations, I tried several test loads. All loads/bullet weight shot excellent. Seems to like 130 grain Berger hybrid with 39. 5 hrs of H4350

    The eabco accuracy barrel is perfect, so perfect it's making hand loads hard to build. I love it and thank you for the great service.

    great barrel, fantastic CS

    Still seasoning the barrel, but it is already shooting far better than my factory barrel. The real reason I am leaving a review, however, is to say that the customer service at EABCO is absolutely the best. I had a problem that was 100 % my fault and these kind folks were 100% accommodating in taking care of my problem. I will definitely be a repeat customer and highly recommend them!

    Posted by William on Sep 14th 2015

    as soon as I received my new barrel, I sent it to 300 Below for cryo treatement and today I finally got a 3/4 inch group. but it was with some old speer 90 grain FMJ bullets, you'al are sending me some good Barns and Nosler bullets that I just ordered. I expect groups to even get better. thank you for a great product. Bill Glover Thermopolis WY.

    2nd barrel I have purchased from EABCO and I am very pleased with my 243 win. Dropped a hog at 200yds with it only game I have taken and that was off the shelf ammo. So far I am getting about a 1' group on paper but I think I can improve that with hand loads. Fit and finish was great shipping was very timely and I highly recommend them.

    Ok, I just zeroed my T/C Pro Hunter Blue Rifle Frame w/Flextech Stock, TC Encore Accuracy Barrel with the JP Howitzer Brake installed, and TC Encore and Contender G2 Action Job or Trigger Job. I completed my zero by shooting nine round at the 200 yd target. My last shot group of three rds placed two through the same hole and were dead X!!! I love my New T/C Pro Hunter with the TC Encore Accuracy Barrel and I highly recommend it.

    this is my third accuracy barrel. first was a.243, then a 6.5x55 .Now a 6.5x47 lapua.haven't had much time for the swead but the.243 and the lapua are some of the best shooting guns I've ever owned. Was recently shooting the lapua and we were smacking clay pigeons at 5 and 6 hundred yards.I'm looking forward to seeing what it will do at a thousand.

    Shot was 342... Buck Dropped in his Tracks!

    Posted by D Bedingfield on Jan 19th 2015

    I don't as a rule share my hunting experiences but thought I would make an exception. I am very impressed with the Encore pro hunter in 6.5 BRM. Here is a picture of a nice South Dakota mule deer I shot November 22, 2014. Shot was 342 yards. Buck dropped in his tracks. I was shooting your 140 grain ammo. Gun scoped with your Brown 4x -12x variable. I greatly enjoy hunting with this weapon.
