Encore

Was wondering if any one knows if the TC Encore frame would stand up to the 338 edge. Was thinking of having a 32 inch barrelwith a good brake. If the frame will stand it. Would like to use 300 grain smk. What velocity could I expect if this project is even fesable. Thanks for any input.

Re: Encore

I don't know many people who put any of the magnums in an encore, I think the 308 boltface is about as big as they go. I think is too much for the frame...

Re: Encore

The biggest concern for me is case head thrust and chamber wall thickness. Does anyone know what the pressures for the edge would be.

Re: Encore

That seems to be the everyones thought as well. I have a friend who has a warbird barrel thought maybe the pressures , case head thrust, and barrel wall would be similar. Wasn't sure as I don't have the dimensions for the warbird. Thought it would be cool to build a long range rig extremely cheap but I will not do anything that may become dangerous. Safety first always. That is why I was wanting opinions on whether or not it was a good idea or not.
