Re: .25 caliber options
Yes, .257 STW requires opening up the bolt-face. So does going to .257 Wby Mag.
They .257 Wby Mag would be easier to find brass for, and cheaper to shoot. Barrel life would be slightly longer, and velocities are just a tad slower than the STW.
Personally, I think you should give the .257 Wby Mag a try.....You won't be disappointed.
But then again, it all comes back down to preference, b/c it is in the end, your gun.
