I have two of them. Both the rifle and cartridge are superb. 100 grain bullets at 3650 to 3700 fps into < .7" and 75 grain bullets go 3950-4000 fps < .4". It really likes 75 grain V-Max's

Hired Gun,
Thanks for the info on the Accumark.
A friend had one out at a praire dog shoot in New Mexico it was a 270 weatherby magnum loaded w/some 90gr hp's.
Man did it make a showing,front and rear of a big pd where 45'apart.
A 75gr v-max at 3950-4000fps is scorching for sure.Thanks for the info Mike

I liked the two 257 Accumarks so much I just changed out my Deluxe for an Accumark in 300Wby. God willing, I think it would be cool to have an Accumark in every Weatherby caliber.
