Ya when I hear people comment on lack of .257 bullets, I think they just haven't looked enough. While there may have been a lack of heavy .257 bullets, there certainly isn't an overall lack. I have probably 8-10 different bullets for myWhy? Because it will fit in my tikka magazine while allowing me to seat the bullet way out of the case and get close to the lands..on a standard bolt face
As for options now we have the 131gr blackjack (waiting on the next run of bullets of course), 135gr Berger LRHT (very available right now), 133gr Berger soon, and a variety of copper/mono options. Hopefully more to come soon..
.257 cartridge rifle not including the new Bergers or the new sierra TGK 110 bullet. Speer, Sierra, Hornady, all offer numerous bullets. Berger now offers a few plus the many monos offered equal more than one person would ever use.
