Re: Weatherby’s Newest Vanguard: The Series 2 And The .257 Weatherby Magnum
I see Timney has the trigger issue taken care of, and I’ve got an itch for a new gun. A couple of questions for those of you with a 257 Vanguard.
How is the fouling with this round? Would you say the finish of the barrels are smoother than Remington’s, causing less fouling? As far as this being an over-bore cartridge, is it worth looking into the stainless barrels for sake of barrel life?
As for load development with the Weatherby cartridge, I assume loading into the lands is impossible, so you are pretty set on loading to magazine OAL? When it comes to shooting groups, I assume 3 shots at a time are enough before you get that sporter contour barrel too hot?
Thanks in advance for all the info!
