    Your .257Bee will work just fine. I like the 110 gr. Nosler Accubond bullet loaded with H1000 powder and a Fed 215Mag primer.

    Old Roy knew what he was doing when he came up with this one!

    There are 2 seperate discussion on this that must have 100 comments posted. Go to page 2 and 2/3s of the way down. 25-06 & .257 Wby are there. I own and shoot both on deer/antelope. Lots of good discussion and comments.

    .243 to a .270 works good. If you like timber hunting the good old 30-30 is hard to beat.

    The .257Wby is a great round. I have had one for about 12 years now. It is by far my favorite for deer sized game.

    If I was putting together a dedicated muley rifle I would think long and hard at the .270WSM.
    But that 257 Bee will work fantastic.

    I like the good old .30-06 with 150 grains. They always do the trick!
