I've never felt the need to step into the Maximum speed club in the past, but I have always been intrigued by Roy Weatherby's personal favorite. So I recently purchased a .257 Weatherby rifle and was wondering if any of you would care to pass on your experiences with the .257 on game or paper.
This rifle weighs in at nearly 9lbs scoped, yet the previous owner had invested in a very nice muzzle brake. Having not shot this rifle yet, does this rifle have the recoil to actually warrant the muzzle brake? I can't imagine it would, and currently I intend to have the brake removed and a thread protector installed in its place.
I would imagine the muzzle blast on this rig would be rather "invigorating."
What load have you guys and gals had the best luck with in your .257 rifles?
