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.

    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...

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

    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.
