I'm sorta new here...

Hi folks.

Since I started researching my new passion (the .257 Roy and the Vanguard S2), I've been reading post on this forum and decided to register.

Looking forward to learning and sharing what I can.

Hope y'all have a Blessed Day!

Wayne

    Welcome to LRH. You've got to a place where the people are smart and they're generally nice (there are a few dorks here).

    Tell us some more about your passion. Can't say I'm familiar with a 257roy. Do you already own one? what's your intended use?

    The .257 Roy is the .257 Weatherby. I picked it up a week ago or so. I have been to the range with it one time, and love it. Headed back out tomorrow for a little quality time.

    Mounted a 4.5x14 Leupold VXIII on it in Talley LW rings. I just put a liittle custom touch paint job on the factory stock.

    So far, I have run the factory Weatherby 80grn TTSX loads through it with decent results. Going to try some of the factory Hornady 90 grn GMX loads.

    I will use it this deer season and then thru the winter for coyotes.

    I like the 257 Roy moniker!

    It's a great cartridge.

    Are you able to reload? it would allow you to really bring out the performance of a high-performance cartridge like the 257roy.

    You Bet! I started with the factory loads so I could build some brass. I have plenty of the 80grn TTSX boolits and a barrel of IMR 4831 ready to go. I am inclined to load the 100 grn TTSX, but find I have plenty of 80 grainers just waiting to be stuffed into cases.

    We are limited to hunt here in my area with lead free projectiles, so my options are a little limited. But if she keeps shooting like she did today, I could live with it.



    That's .408" with factory loads. I hope my home rolled will match or surpass that. I like it a lot!!
