PT,

Tell me a little @ the rifle, as the caliber is an unknown for me:

1. Twist
2. Loads/bullets
3. Velocity
4. Who built it?

Thanks.....

Speedy-
Check out www.duanesguns.com, Duane Spooner built the rifle and developed the cartridge.
The twist is 1 in 10 which will stabilize a wide variety of bullets from the 75 grain V-Max all the way up to the 115 and 120 grain bullets. I have only shot the 100 and 115 grain Ballistic Tips, 5 shots each. Both groups were .5" or less. The 115's had a velocity of 3,020fps and the 100 grainers were at 3,225. I didn't push these loads and haven't shot it since. If memory serves me, it was H4350.

Can you use once-fired factory match .308 brass to make the 257DGR? I have a large supply of it on hand.... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

You can use 308 brass. It would require FL resizing in an intermediate die first, like the 7mm-08. Necking down from 308 to 257 probably wouldn't work all in one shot.
Depending on what brass you have, you may have to turn the necks. I believe the chamber is a .288 and using 260 brass, a loaded round is .284, the 308 would probably be a bit thicker than that.
I am including about 100 rounds of brass with rifle.
