Re: Looking for loads for 240, and 257 Weatherby magnum

I also really like the 110 Accubonds with 72.0gr H1000 in my 257WBY. I just tried the load last week, and shot a very impressive group with it. With the OAL at 3.30" it shot a .787" group, and moving the bullet out to 3.40" it shot a .240" @ 100yds. (that was from subtracting the caliber size from the group) I am very impressed with this Rem CDL now that I found something it likes.

Another good load for mine is 117 SST, 68.0 gr RL25. This load shot a .762" group at OAL 3.235" Both of these loads should be fine hunting loads.

Good luck

I use 73.5gr H1000 with COL 3.316 yielding 3408 fps. This is close to max in my gun (.257 Wby Mark), so be sure and work up to this load.
