« on: July 06, 2016, 03:16:44 PM »
Thinking about a .257 . I was going to call Jim Gaska and ask about details on what barrel (specs) and bullet would be best for 200yds+
Anyone want to chim in? Thanks!

You are not alone....  ;)

I would use the TJ's 25/20 liner, which has a 14" twist, in a 28" length.... You can't go wrong with the Lyman 257420 bullet, available from Arsenal Moulds in the original (gas check) version.... or the boattail version I designed.... I believe Nick at Nielson Ammo will be tooling up to supply the original version shortly....

I just talked to Jim. Sounds like I'm going to have  Travis do a complete gun for me.  The internals of my .30cal WAR Fox just won't do the job. I really didn't feel like doing a barrel swap anyhow. I got the .30 dialed in.

I would imagine it will be a differant animal so Travis will have to come up with a new name for it

Wouldn't want to have to upgrade later, right?  I agree.  Do it once, do it right.  Buy the best you can otherwise you just buy it twice.  I'm sure Travis is just all kinds of giddy putting it together too.

Would like to hear updates when available!

Also, would this be able to swap right onto the Flex .30 I have, or is different valving being introduced as well?
