I'm pretty sure you aren't comparing apples to apples. Do you really believe a 25-06 AI is 150 fps faster than a 257 Weatherby?

the one I posted is the fastest for the 257 Wby on ammoguide.
show me one better. I also looked in all my load books.
if you look up the capacity of the 257 Wby and the 264 win they have the same and the 264 can't beat it either

You can break 4000fps with 80, 85, or 87grn pills in a 257wby, factory wby 257 87grn ammo is 3825.

Well, who wants to shoot a .25 cal bullet? Do they have the great BCs of the 6.5, and 7mm bullets?

I don't know much about the 25.06 but an acquaintance I met in Colorado took a big big bull elk with one using ballistic tips. He had to shoot it 5 times though.

are the barrels all the same length with the above data? Were magnum primers used in all? What were the powders used?
