25/06 AI will have close (But not quite)to the same performance as the Wby and has no belt.
Also with the larger case head size there will be more action loading due to more Sq/inches of
The Encore is a strong action but brake open actions can be over loaded and gain more head space
when loaded with hot loads or loads that they were not designed for.
Build what you want but be aware of these potential problems.
