The .257 (yes, I have one, LOL) is kick butt.. Smokes the 6.5-300 (yes, I have one) in muzzle velocity but the 6.5 can launch a heavier bullet so it's an energy thing. I was telling my buddy how fast the .257 was so the next time I was at the range he told me to prove it and shoot his 3/8 AR500 Steel plate. I did and although it didn't go all the way through it put a big old bulge in the back side.

I love my .257 and I'm glad I have it but if I only had two Weatherby hunting rifles and wanted to hunt Antelope, Sheep, Deer, Elk and Moose. The choices would be the 6.5-300 and the 30-378.
