    A Hearty Congratulations! I'm happy for you and happy you posted that, I've threatened to go down the .257 W rabbit hole for a number of years. With it windy and miserable out along with chores done yesterday, I may be joining you sooner than later to the club.......

    Just bought 2 boxes of ammunition.
    They don't give that stuff away.
    (More than) twice the money to throw half the lead.

    If it’s any consolation, the 45/70 ammo I just threw downrange isn’t any cheaper. And way pricier to reload....

    It’s really showing it’s stuff since I lapped the rings. Ragged five shot holes at 102.7 yards.

    The Barnes 115gr TSX performed as advertised this year. Left a perfect twoonie sized exit hole on one deer and removed several ribs from the other. A much neater wound channel than I had with the Gamekings or Weatherby’s proprietary spitzer, which pretty much liquified the entire chest cavity. The speed still seems to provide enough shock that they don’t travel far, if at all. So far, meat damage is somewhat reduced. I don’t think I’d hesitate to use these little pills on elk or moose. Speed kills. And it kills trees if you’ve read the other thread....

    I was getting pretty pumped to use this new 257 this year.
    But for whatever reason, the days I shot deer it wasn't what I grabbed.
    Which, in hindsight, is probably for the best.
    I didn't spend much time shooting this one beforehand.
