All Roy wetherby shoulder angles are the same..he used the shell of a 300 Holland and holland on his magnums.. Ackley had already worked up a wildcat very similar to Roy's 257..Roy just put his signature design on the case and marketed itHuh! Never heard that before! Where can I read about it?
Also super interesting to me as it's the only AI with a double venturi shoulder. When did he switch to his standardized 40 degree?
I'm about to work up a load for my new .257 with 120 gr Speer BTs.... Any experience, anybody, with 7828 vs Retumbo here??257wby w/ 131 Blackjacks ALL DAY!
I'm running them at 3303fps, single digit ES/SD with 7828ssc-- could definitely go faster with Retumbo, most guys are getting 3400ish
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
