Re: encore

Thats right Ian , alot of guys want their Encore with a WSM or Ultra mag barrel and it can be done but you have to run the pressure so low you can't even get regular mag velocity and expect the frame to last.
I have a couple and all are the CM frames and barrels to help with some strength , I always ream the pin hols so the pin is making at least 95% contact (its amazing how out of round the holes are in the frames and lugs) , I have run a 308 to some pretty high pressure and not had any trouble.

But more than likely anything you do to the gun will void the warnty

Re: encore

I meant Mike Bellm does not do custom barrel requests on a indiviudal basis.
I was not talking about Mike Sirios. Mike S. does any custom barrel design you can think of.

Sorry for the confusion.
