I know of 6 257 Weatherby's and all of them shoot the 100g Nosler BT, and none of them have experienced bullet failures. In otherwords, what they shot was laying right where it was standing when it was hit.
I also have shot a coyote at 50-65 yards straight away running shot and the bullet hit the yote in the butt and came out it's chest.
The 100g Ballistic tip is not a varmint bullet.
I think that you will do just fine with the 115 CT, part of the fun is trying and seeing what happens!

I used the X in my 2506 for deer up to 300yds and never had a problem
[/ QUOTE ] Are you saying that 300 yds is the furthest you have shot a deer with this round or that is furthest that you would ever shoot a deer with that load? What would your max distance be with this set-up? (500-600yds?) I sent you an e-mail 458win.
Has anyone tried the .257 Berger VLD bullets? I would like to try them out.
