About 45,000 psi. More than that is generally considered a high pressure cartridge.

The contender fires cartridges such as the 30-30, 45-70, and hand gun cartridges. The 30-30 maximum average pressure is 42,000 psi and the 45-70 is a low 28,000 psi.

The encore fires cartridges such as the .270, 30-06, 300 Win mag, 375H&H. Take the .270 Winchester. It's maximum average pressure is 65,000 psi. In fact all of these I listed have maximum average pressures of over 60,000 psi.


Basically the encore is a stronger firearm than the contender and is designed to safely fore these high energy cartridges.

Also you can take some of the letters from Contender and spell Encore it doesnt work the other way around. Im sure that will help with you decision.
