I can load any bullet you like. My weblink is below with a few options. Also, the Load Development video I made was with a 257 Wby shooting either 100 or 110 grain Barnes TSX. Let me know if I can help you. Thanks!
at $4 or more per shot for factory loads other than standard cup and core bullets and can reload said bullets for less than $1 per round it makes reloading equipment seem cheap if you are going to shoot it much at all.
Of all the calibers to reload (or have reloaded), the Weatherby one's would be it. They are expensive as factory ammo, and the ammo quality is not that great. Brass is expensive for it, but once you have it, you can reload them multiple times.
Long story boring- I had a customer with a custom 300 Wby mag and he bought 2 different factory Wby ammo offerings to test in his new rifle. They would shoot 2"-4" at 100 yards, and all over the place. He had the gunsmith look over the rifle again, and the smith assured him the was fine. He brought me the rifle for load development. He wanted me to break down the factory ammo by pulling the factory bullets out and reuse the brass. When pulling the bullets, I weighed each powder charge from each round. I weighed the powder charge of about 20 rounds. I had a 1.9 grain swing from high to low. 1.9 grains!!!! What does this mean? I load my single stage ammo to within .02 grains, or to the exact kernel of powder. When I work up test loads, I increase the powder charge in .3 to .4 grains, and have about 5 groups to test (about a 1.5 grain spread in 5 groups) I am looking for the accuracy node within a certain powder charge range. Going up in .3 grain increments, it would take over 6 test load groups with a 1.9 grain difference. I can easily pass 2 accuracy nodes in 6+ groups of test loads with this large of a spread. This is why the factory ammo was all over the place. And, this ammo was about $70+ a box!!!
I have been loading my 257 wby mag with IMR4831 and 100 gr accubonds, no idea on the speed, I guess it's about time to buy a chronograph, but anyways they will shoot about 3/4" @ 100 yds with me on the trigger and I ain't the best shot. By far it's one of my favorite rifles!

Last year I bought 700 CDL in .257 Weatherby. I've put almost three boxes of different ammo and it's all over the place. Smith told me barrel was fine. I have it in my mind to send it to Remington or better yet trade it in for a real Weatherby.
Guess I need to give Chad a chance first.

I purchased a 700 CDL SF 257 a while back. I had it bedded and floated then had an issue with the bolt not wanting to close. I sent it back to remington and have not shot it since getting it back. I looked over your website Chad and I'm very interested in having you work up some loads for my gun. I'll be in touch.
