IT can be done. Just as long as you accept you cannot run it the same way you can a bolt rig.
I would much rather improve an 06 case than use the larger bolt face, but that is a personal preference after having a bad experience(s) with a 338 Win Mag right after the Encore first came out.

Glad to know it can be done safely as long as they watch it. I know some people have gone overboard in what they can chamber the TC's in.

Personally i wouldn't do it.
The Encore can flex quite a bit.
Really watch case stretch.
Kirby can give some insight into pushing things with the encore as he had a Lazz case chambered for one a number of years ago.

I wonder what the max case head diameter you can safely chamber a TC in is??? I dont know what the Lazz case head is. I know i have heard of problems with WSM and Ultra mag cases so maybe we will see what the limit really is.

Maybe we can get Special K to chime in on this

Thanks Guys For All The Replies, I Think The .300wby Will Be The Way To Go. Has Anyone Got An Idea On Velocity Out Of The 28"bbl?
