    .257 heavies

    Interesting. Would a 125gr give you much more BC and performance than the existing 115gr? Scrummy

    Nosler E-Tips in .257 Roberts seem to be a winner

    I have a load for them in my .223 Rem as well. Might well try them on a Chinese Water Deer in the next few weeks

    Nosler E-Tips in .257 Roberts seem to be a winner

    Hi folks, Well, lloks like the E-tip performs well enough on the smallest species of UK deer, the Muntjac. 2 successful kills over last weekend. Now I just wish I could find enough of them to do some proper load development. I have a load shooting about 1" but I think there is more there if...

    Lee FCD in 45-70

    They sell you them separately: And I guess they will come with the dies eventually but it's a pain they don't come as standard. I have used the Hornady lock rings in the past but to get 4 dies with Hornady lock rings on...
