FOOD FOR THOUGHT-48thguns may be on to something. I am in the process of ordering a barrel for my Encore from Bullberry Barrel Works. They refuse to chamber any of the WSM's. They state safety reasons for not chambering WSM's. This is pertinent, because Bullberry chambers hundreds of cartridges. Tom.

I am sure you are right about the WSM in the encore. However they do chamber the 375 H&H. I am not an expert on pressure by any means, but I do know that the 375 H&H is pretty powerful. And TC also chambers the 300 Winchester Magnum. So how would that make the WSM unsafe. I am only asking. Tom.

I never thought about the wall thickness. That makes sense. Tom.

Basically it is a toss up which one is better. I would go with whichever one feels best to you.
