The 270 WSM will have a cheaper brass choice for loading if that is a concern.

Re: 270 wsm or 257 weatherby

I have not done any of the math yet......but once you throw 800 yards in the mix I would argue AGAINST the 257. I am not sure I would argue FOR the WSM either!!!! 7MM WSM would be a better choice.

The only one of these I have any experiance with is the 257, so take the above with that in mind!!

And +2 buy them both!!

270 WSM, 150 Berger VLD, .531 BC, will smoke the .25 cal's at long range. The 7mm WSM is a great choice also, but factory rifle selection is limited.

I love my 257 Bee, but the 110/120gr bullets are not ideal for 700yds. The 150gr .270 is better, but I would agree with the others that suggested you move up to the 7mm. My 7mm Bee with 180gr Bergers makes a good long range combo.

Other than a furry yet skeletal type creature in which collects honey... what's a 7mm Bee and 25 Bee?
