    Anyone know any big pros and cons of the 257 wby magnum? I wanna get one for a deer rifle ? How much would it cost to build one off a remington 700 or wby mark 5 action

    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.

    I understand what you mean but my philosophy is simple, if you have a rifle that's capable of a thousand yard shot, its capable of killing a deer at 100

    Is it true that this round burns barrels out pretty fast ?
