bigmac, welcome to the forum! stop over in the introductions section and say hello.
the 257 wby magnum is an excellent deer caliber, little better than the 25-06 in ballistics, but recoil is little more also. why build if just for hunting deer? just buy one as Weatherby rifles are excellent rifles and very accurate, i have had a few in the past and they were very nice rifles and they are very well made.
