I have a 257 weatherby that shoots 110 accubonds in one hole groups two inside each other and one cutting those two killed black bear as far as 352 yds one shot DRT its an awesome cartridge just handload hornady now making brass for it should make it a little cheaper to shoot m

Re: 270 wsm or 257 weatherby

My nod has to go to the 270wsm. I have a browning m-1000 eclipse chambered in the 270wsm and absolutely love the performance of this gun/cal combo. My main hunting load is a 130gr TSX loaded with magpro powder 3500fps. 507yards is the longest shot on deer so far. All I can say is it layed the smack down. I have since been working on some loads with 130gr accubonds and have right around 3400fps with no pressure signs.
