257 weatherby long range whitetails
I shoot a custom built 257 weatherby, and was wondering what you guys think max yardage should be. I shoot handloads of 73 grs of imr 7828 behind a 117 hornady interlock, I get 3500 fps out of a air gauged douglas barrel. Accuracy out of this rig is outstanding, I shot an 1 1/4" group @ 300 yards off of a bipod from the prone, needless to say the wind was 0, and thats incredible here in Nebraska! I shot a 2 1/2 year old 5x4 on the last day of season last year at 517 yards and the bullet opened up nice exiting the far side of the buck the size of a 50 cent piece the deer folded where it stood!
