I am new on this forum. I found it will looking for reviews on the 257 weatherby. From what I have read, there seem to be mixed reviews not on the caliber, but on the guns, namely weatherbys. With this being said, I am leaning toward a custom gun. I do not know much about custom guns, but I have shot a lightweight rifles inc. gun chambered in 257 weatherby. The gun was quite a nice shooting gun. The applications that I will be using this gun for is 300 yrd shots on medium game and up to 500 yrd shots on paper. I am not set on the caliber of gun. Any information would be helpful.
