Weatherby Ammo Prices
« on: March 28, 2018, 06:20:54 PM »
New to the forum and new to Weatherby ammo. Notice that there is a great difference in price from one source to another. I have the 257 Weatherby Mag. I've notice from $33.00 to over $80.00 per box. I now that they ar different bullets used but that can't be the only difference. Is there anything I need to be on the look out for before purchasing? Thanks for any info.

It's all about the projectile.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

I reload a lot of different calibers and I have never seen a bullet increase the cost almost 3 times the overall cost. This gun is being used for my grandson so it want be used over 200 yds. Do you see that much difference between these?

Everyone here complains about meat loss when they kill with the Spitzers out of the 257.That bullet behind shoulder low or middle for heart and lung is a killer fast.They won't run far if any.It's good place for a kid to aim for too.If he wants to shoot a bunch then let him get used to the rifle with the cheap stuff and during deer season go to the 100 grain Barnes.Generally this crowd is heavy for caliber,but I would hunt deer with the 80 grain TTSX if I was shooting a 257.The 85 grain TSX is a great Whitetail bullet out of my 240.For 0-200 out of a 257 just about anything will work.
