Thats awsome I bet that is one hell of a rifle and an awsome round. My wife and I got a .257 Weatherby Mag in a Vangaurd Delux for a wedding gift. I am happy with it mainly because its beautiful and free. I have shot 2 different rounds thru it, a 117gr Round Nose, 115gr ballistic tip, both rounds held 3/4 inch groups @ 100 yards. It sucks that only Nosler and Weatherby are the only people who make the rounds for that rifle (very high $$ rounds). On the other hand my buddys 25-06 in a Rem. 700 ADL is a tack driver. he shoots 117gr. Hornady. That rifle is VERY ACCURATE. That .257 is like a 25-06 on steriods but does not seem to be as accurate.I disagree with you Txfishhunt. For the money, the weatherby is hard to beat...the entry level remingtons have been junk. Now in comparison to the Rem sendero, thats a whole other story...but generally speaking, the weatherby blows it away. One of my most accurate and favorite guns to shoot, is my weatherby vanguard .308. The gun has been to hell and back, drenched in rain, mud from the 4wheeler etc and never missed a beat.
