That is one sweet rifle. I

That is one sweet rifle. I have wanted one in .257 Weatherby for a long time but have never pulled the trigger so to speed for one. Now with your .340 you have everything covered from antleope to bears. All you need to do now is to find a .224 Weatherby for varmets Thumbs up

Congrats!

Congrats on a very nice new rifle. I looked hard at the .257's before going with a 6.5 x 284.

Anything .257, Roberts, 06, or Weatherby makes a dandy pronghorn getter. Vaya con Dios, Biker

sweet

Marty my buddy absolutely ruined a antelope with the wrong shot and bullet choice out of his!!! Never seen so much carnage!!! I have always wanted a .17 centerfire. Why, who knows. My 22-250 bull barrel is crazy accurate. We just want I guess!!!

257WBY

Nice looking rifle. I have always wanted a 257 WBY. The bad thing for me up here is that ammo or brass are non existant so it wouldn't be a feasable choice for me. Lately I have problems finding loading components for my 338 and 243, never mind trying to find WBY brass

 The 257 is an overlooked caliber in my mind, a lot of people here are caught up in the Short Magnum craze.
