Didn't Westley Richards call the 7x57 the .276 WR? With everybody now calling their 7x57s the .275 Rigby, maybe I'll call mine the .276 WR. Ya think? Paul B.
Our forefathers did not politely protest the British.They did not vote them out of office, nor did they impeach the king,march on the capitol or ask permission for their rights. ----------------They just shot them. MOLON LABE
Based on John Sundra's experience with 7mms of all kinds of chamberings, I recommended the 154gr Hornady for my buddy's wife in her 7mm/08. A trip to Colorado, one shot, and a 3x3 elk on the ground. So, if the 7/08 could do it, the 7x57 will do it. In spades.
Gun control...schemed by tyrants and supported by fools.
When I was culling brumbies with the .275 Rigby, I used a few bullets and the 140 and 150gn Nosler Solid Bases stayed inside shoulder or chest shots, the 160gn Failsafe's penetrated side on shots but I dug 3 from rumps, bulging under the skin after passing full length, 140gn Barnes X's have penetrated every horse and anything else I have shot with them, regardless of angle, so I have never recovered one. Because we all accept that the bullet does the work, a 7x57 loaded with either a 140gn TTSX or 145 LRX at 2900fps and 2850fps respectively, is enough for anything under 1,000 pounds and more if you can place it well. Makes it harder to justify a heavier bullet unless your rifle just liked them.
