257 Weatherby ammunition?
« on: May 17, 2021, 11:13:35 AM »
What's the market look like for 257 Weatherby ammunition these days?  Is Weatherby ammo still being produced?  I can't imagine there is huge demand from new shooters looking specifically for non-.30 or .338 caliber (i.e. 338-378) options.

I can't find primers so, wildcatting some other source cases isn't an option.  I'm also not paying over $5/rd either.  470NE, maybe but not relatively standard bolt action options.

What I would really like to find are some older Norma or new Hornday 90~100 grain options for relatively normal MSRP prices.  Am I just out of luck until the COVID crazed and new riot panicked buyers grab whatever they think they need in their Walter Mitty fantasies?

TIA,
Sid

Raw brass has sky rocketed too along with everything else.Biden's inflation at it's best.We haven't seen the worst of it yet either.
Remember 10534

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.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

I agree with the riots and Biden fueling shortages driven by panic buys and driving up the costs of everything.  Heck, even cars are up ~20%.  Inflation driven by fear and public debt under this administration is drawing similarities to the horrendous economy and inflation under former President Carter.
