    Default 257-300Wby after 128 rounds still shoots tight

    Some one ask me if my 257-300Wby was still grouping tight groups after I reported that I had fired 128 rounds. So today I tested it again with 86grs Retumbo and here are the results.

    Average of three shots with 100gr TSX and 86grs Retumbo

    Here is a group I fired last week with the same 86grs Retumbo and you can see the consistency of this rifle and load.

    It'll be interesting to see when the barrel pukes on that rifle of yours.

    Good shooting.

    BT,

    The barrel is completely shot out, gone, get rid of that thing, quick.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    And when it does I am going to rebarrel it with a 28" three grove Lilja!!!! I love 25 cal. and this thing is hot. What I can't wait to see is the first deer or coyote puke when I hit them if they have time to.

    Yea, that spread might mean it is time to rebarrel. That will happen and I will keep on having fun.

    If it hangs around like my friends has I will be over 700 and them some. His is still shooting. We will see. Freebore will help it last a little longer than if it were not freebored.

    What glass does this rig wear?

    I've been pronghorn hunting a few times and those things have a knack for standing and gawking just out of range. I'm thinkin your rig would be just the checker for the noblest gawkers. They would have to draw a new line in the dirt!

    I'm a big fan of the quarter bore as well. Got another 257 WBY on the way right now. The super grade stock has an awesome piece of wood on it.

    You got to put a picture up when it comes. I love the 257Wby and think it is the best quarter bore and second I really like my 257-300Wby
