Re: 257 Weatherby?
First things first.
A 25-06 will not meet or exceed a 257 Weather if both are loaded to the same pressures and barrel length. Its a physics thing. "Modern" components improve the 257 as much as they improve the 25-06.
Then on to the chambering, I have only heard good things unless there was something wrong with the rifle. I have mine but have not done anything with it yet.
Mud, the only Wby standard 6.5 is a vanguard but I bet the custom shop would make you one. Perhaps as an apology for sending you a lunar surface diorama for a barrel.
