I'm using a Ruger M77 in .257 roberts for blowing up small mammals.
Right now, I'm using the Hornady 75gr HP over 43 grains of 760. (In Winchester +P brass) This does something a little over 3000fps out of my barrel. I didn't up the charge to 46 or 47 grains since accuracy is now excellent in the ultra-lite barrel, under 1" at 100 yds, and I like the light recoil.
Anyone here have other favorite light loads for this cartridge? (or, I guess, for the .25-06, which has since become much more popular)
Also,.is there really any advantage for the 75-grain Hornady V-Max bullets over their 75 grain HP's? It's a few more dollars per box.
