    Default 6.5 Tcu

    I've been thinking about buying a 14" 6.5 TCU barrel for my thompson. Anyone that has any experience with these please do tell. I would assume they shoot pretty tight out to about 200yd, perhaps beyond.

    A properly set up Thompson Contender with the barrel/cartridge you have specified will go 200 and beyond. I suppose you are already familiar and shooting with a how far you can shooting accurately will be pretty much up to your ability........go for it!!!!!!

    Default 6.5

    I have a 10" tube in 6.5 tcu. I have had it about 3 years now and it is a good one with 120 grain bullets but accuracy with the lighter bullets is not as good ( in my tube).I really like the round but I still have not got the chance to take a whitetail with it yet.
