I once owned TC Encore in 7mm08 and 223. I have since sold the gun and bought a SW 460 revolver. I have since sold that gun, but would like to get back to the TC platform for hunting season. My question is: Can the TC Contender frame except the 460SW barrel, and if it can, is the frame strong enough? I know there are some powerful calibers put thru the TC contenders, but I'm curious as to the 460SW. Or is the 460SW exclusive to the Encore model?

460 is Encore only.

Pretty sure the biggest "thumper" you can get in a contender frame is the 45-70.

Yep, that's about it for factory barrels but SSK offers re-chambering...I have one in .444 Marlin
