Default FOUND- light .257 bullets

I have what I needed to sort out what the barrel likes, Thanks Guys.


Looking for any unwanted, unneeded, or unloved .257 jacket bullets in 60-75 grains, or cast gas checked bullets sized .258-.259 in 50- 80 grains. A few, a lot does not matter. I just got a 256WIN MAG pistol barrel and want to try different things and/or find some reasonably priced plinkin/woodchuck slaying bullets. My barrel has a 14 twist, so no heavies for this little feller. If you have such a thing in excess to your needs I would appreciate your PM...ÖÖ. Thanks

No problem. These barrels (yes I gained another) seem to prefer the lighter bullets like I theoretically thought they would. I can make the 60 grain Hornady FP do some amazing things. Gonna have to put a small hoard of them away just in case.

Ever consider boring one of your barrels out to 256 Win Super Mag? If you think the 256 can do amazing things,you might be in for a surprise...

I have all the jacketed bullets I need, just got a sizer die for my STAR sizer, and I have a mould on the way. Thank You to everyone that helped me figure out what my barrels like and did not like. Much appreciated.
