Hey Tom
A common problem with the 35 rem contenders, especially with factory ammo. I had one and just neck sized it and had 100% ignition, shot less than an inch at 200 also. Finally sent it to SSK for rechamber to 358JDJ. Like and idiot I traded it off.

No, I've moved up to the Encore. Encore frame can take more pressure than the Contender but the triggers s@ck compared to the Contender. Want to get a 338 win mag or 375 ruger barrel made up.

Back on topic, "calibars" you shoot. Conten
ders are great guns; but that should be another post?

I like 30/30 for most every thing but big game.

Thanks James.
We do have a Contender thread going but 338 Win Mag or 375 Ruger are calibers.

Agreed, Tom:
I am as guilty as the next guy on drifting off topic, but that wasn't much of a drift.
Best, Capt. Chris

7mm-08 (Remington 700), caliber of choice. Good fire power and kind on a poor shoulder.

Kent, I'll have to talk with you regarding Twin City ranges and shooting.

When I got my TC-Encore, the trigger sucked also. I sent it to Mike Bellm for a trigger job and the difference is unbelievable. He also did a "hammer" job as when I added the thimb extension, it added too much weight to the hammer and about half the time, it wouldn't hit the firing pin hard enough to fire the cartridge. Certainly not a good thing when taking a shot on a critter. After the workover, I have a 3 lb trigger pull and no more miss-fires due to a weak hammer spring. Again, if you are a TC fan, this fellow is the best.
