  1. Amazing

    By Chuck May 08, 2018

    I have two 257 Mag Weatherby's a custom and a standard mark 5, they have amazing killing power for game up and including Elk. Put away your 06 and your 7mm Rem Mag this does a better job with far less recoil the only drawback is that the ammunition is a bit pricey. So if you want the best...pay for it or start reloading!

  3. Beautiful Guns

    By Fatboy January 28, 2018

    I'm 73 years old , so I don't do much hunting anymore but I still love to shoot. I go to the range 5 or 6 times a year. I load my own shells for two reasons. Cost and they are more accurate. People complaining about the cost of shells must not be picking up their spent brass. Once you have your brass it's not that much more per shell than any other round. Besides, you MUST pay for the finer things in life.

  4. Have been shooting the 257 for decades

    By Old Man December 22, 2017

    I have been shooting the 257 for what seems like forever. I have killed far too many deer, hogs, and coyotes to remember. T he salient point is that this cartridge has never failed me. Too, it is a real help that all factory bullets seem to shoot nearly to the same point of aim. I do not know how many different rifles I have owned and shot in this cal., but right now I am shooting the Mark V ultra light, and it is a joy.

  5. Great flat round

    By Jhood December 17, 2017

    Great flat shooting hard hitting .25 cal. Have one in a vanguard deluxe then had a custom rifle built in 257 wby as well. Can't believe how flat it is and how well it kills . Used it on 20-30 whitetail over the years and not one have left their tracks. Kills better than my 06 and 7 win mag without the recoil. It has quickly become my favorite deer round and have used it out to 500 with just a hold over.
