Roy Weatherby’s personal favorite. Travels 3,870 fps (80 grain bullet), giving you the flattest trajectory of any 25 caliber rifle in the world. Suitable for long-range varmint shooting but ideal for big game hunting (depending upon bullet weight).

    Started shooting the 257 in 2012 and have killed at least two white tail a year since with it. All have been 1 shot 1 kill and haven’t had to chase any of them more than 100 yards, (that was shooter error). I use the 100 grain Barnes TTSX. Shots have ranged from 75 yds to 375 yds. Primarily used in clear cuts and crop land! This is my favorite gun in my arsenal.

    I purchased the Weatherby Backcountry in the .257 Weatherby Magnum rifle the year before last and it has become my favorite rifle by far. It is an extremely accurate rifle and the .257 Weatherby Magnum is a hard hitting round. The Weatherby rounds that I use are the ones loaded with the Barnes bullet. Shot a nice Whitetail on a Tennessee ridgeline last year and the rifle felt like a natural part of me; came to the shoulder well and shot placement was perfect. Highly recommend the Weatherby Backcountry chambered in the .257 Weatherby Magnum. The only downside is the cost of the ammunition. Great gun, great caliber!!!

    Finally drew a tag for Kansas antelope rifle hunt. I purchased my 257 Weatherby specifically for this hunt. I chose the 100 grain spire point for my hunt. I last ranged the “goat” at 336 yards as he was walking on an angle further away. One shot later, I thought he vaporized. No where in sight. Gone. I knew he could only be down. 1 shot, on the strong side of 350 yards, that goat fell when the bullet hit him in the lungs. I’ve never attempted such a long shot, but felt I could make the shot. The combination of my Weatherby Mark V and Weatherby 100 grain spire point did the job. Don’t worry about Weatherby doing its job. You only have to worry about yourself. I’m purchasing the 115 grain for its superior coefficient, energy and trajectory on Whitetail/Mule Deer this season.
