Re: .257 Weatherby Magnum - Bullet selection

keep the 125gr Wildcat in mind, with a BC around .550 it will have a lot more retained velocity and energy downrange than anything else. I will be testing this round out of my 25-06 out to 1500yds in a couple of weeks, will have a better BC estimate then

good luck
steve

300,

Try the barnes Triple shock or the X bullet accuracy can be exceedingly good or else average depends on what your rifle likes. Either one will hold together even if they hit bone and will not cause severe meat damage like a BT. I used the X in my 2506 for deer up to 300yds and never had a problem. Wouldnt hesistate to use it on a elk either.

RUM,
Yes management was the reason I quit there to. Loved the job and process didnt get along with the management. (I did the annealing, cleaning and lubing) Do you still live up there in bend? If so shoot me a email and we can terminate some ground squirrels or chucks sometime.

What's the full story on seconds? Are they just as good?
