  1. Great Factory Loaded Ammo

    By M Sharp October 30, 2017

    I've taken over a dozen large Whitetails with my .257 at ranges from 75-367 yards. All have been quick, clean and humane. I've never had one take more than a few steps after impact!

    If you do your part, the ammo will definitely do it's part.

    I shoot the 110 Accubond's and I couldn't be happier with the performance and accuracy! I can "cloverleaf" three shots at 200 yards from a bench. That is extremely impressive from factory ammunition.

  2. .257 Weatherby Mag. Great Caliber

    By Stu October 02, 2017

    I purchased the Weatherby Backcountry in the .257 Weatherby Magnum rifle the year before last and it has become my favorite rifle by far. It is an extremely accurate rifle and the .257 Weatherby Magnum is a hard hitting round. The Weatherby rounds that I use are the ones loaded with the Barnes bullet. Shot a nice Whitetail on a Tennessee ridgeline last year and the rifle felt like a natural part of me; came to the shoulder well and shot placement was perfect. Highly recommend the Weatherby Backcountry chambered in the .257 Weatherby Magnum. The only downside is the cost of the ammunition. Great gun, great caliber!!!

  3. Excellent

    By TheDuke September 20, 2017

    Started shooting the 257 in 2012 and have killed at least two white tail a year since with it. All have been 1 shot 1 kill and haven't had to chase any of them more than 100 yards, (that was shooter error). I use the 100 grain Barnes TTSX. Shots have ranged from 75 yds to 375 yds. Primarily used in clear cuts and crop land! This is my favorite gun in my arsenal.

  4. shot a lot of deers and hog at long distances
