Just got a T/C Encore Pro Hunter in 35 Whelen with the 28 inch stainless barrel. I have not bought a scope or base for it yet. Anybody have some suggestions? I'm willing to pay for a decent setup but don't want to go broke at the same time. My buddy swears by the Leupold base/Rifleman 3-9 40 scope on his. ALSO, I've researched some accuracy/grouping issues with certain rounds. I'm thinking of using the 200gr Fusions or Core Lokts.
