Re: Accuracy of Remingtons CDL/LSS 257 weatherby

I agree with Tom. The longer tube on the Remington isn't the end all. The speed increase wasnt huge for me either. My Vanguard has served me well and is a great gun.

Here are my "sucessfull" and other loads worth mentioning:

From the Vanguard(3shot)
1. 100gr Hrdy BT/65.0 grI4831/Win mag Primer/ .736"@100yds
2. 100gr Hrdy BT/70 gr H1000/ Win mag Primer/ .865"@100yds
3. 117gr Hrdy BT/69.0 gr H1000/Winmag pr/ .46"@100y
4. 100gr Barnes TSXBT/ 65.5 grs I4831/ Win Mag pr/ .742"@ 100y

From the LSS(3 shot)
1. 115 gr Nosler BT Silvertip/69.6 gr H1000/ Win pr/1.45" @100y
2. 100 gr Hrdy BT/ 65.5 gr I4831/ Win Mag pr/ .631" @100y
3. 100 gr Barnes TSXBT/ 65.5 gr I4831/ Win Mag pr/ .832 @ 100y

Both guns loved the Hornady bullets. I wish they would feel the same about the Barnes bullets. It seemed to me when I was working up a load for both guns the hotter it got the tighter the group became, not a bad thing.
Tom I think I am going to try H1000 again in the LSS. My gut is telling me that the bullets I was using is what didnt agree, not the powder.
I am curious how those Bergers are going to do?

Silverine, Sorry to digress to far from the original subject there. Anyhow back to the point of your post. I give my LSS two thumbs up. Acuracy is coming around on it for me and its fun to shoot. Not that looks mean anything when you are shooting for accuracy but the LSS is sure easy on the eyes. I had trouble finding reviews before I bought mine. One thing, the remington site said something about the 257 wby in LSS as being a light gun. Well "it just aint!" Mine is heavy but I have no problem with that since I have others guns that fill the lightweight billet.
I know the Vanguard MOAs are good guns too. My honest feeling is though after seeing how my standard Vanguard with a new trigger preformed, I would buy the regular Vanguard put a new trigger on it and have one heck of a good gun. My little Vanguard has been a super gun and for the money I cant see how you can beat it.
I know that probably doesnt help your decision but I just wanted to throw my $.02 in, cant hurt, hopefully it helps a bit.

Thanks to all who replied to my questions!

I decided to go with the MOA Vanguard. I'm happy with my choice and when I get a day to shoot, I'll let you know how things progress.

best regards,

When testing Weatherby calibers it's wise to start with flat base bullets.
They seems to shoot well in most Wby calibers.
It's just to have a look at Wby factory fodder, they use Hornady FB bullets.
Avoid BT bullets, since they seems not to group as well.
This is mostly due to the long freebore in Wby calibers.

Just my two cents.
