The .257 Weatherby was one sofRoy Weatherby’s earliest creation and quickly became his favorite. Introduced in 1944 (commercially available in 1945) the .257, which was based on the .300 Holland and Holland case, was shortened to 2.545" and necked down to .25 caliber. As far as Weatherby's philosophy of fast killing through high velocity went, the .257 achieved this goal in spades.

In 1951, due to not having the space or organization abilities, Weatherby contracted out Norma to begin producing the .257 Weatherby. It wasn’t long before all of Weatherby’s ammunition was produced by Norma. This belted bottlenecked cartridge far exceeded any expectations Weatherby might have had.

The .257 Weatherby has nearly 400 feet per second of velocity over the common .25-06, which means nearly 600 foot-pounds more energy on target. Though it is mainly restricted to use with medium0sized game, this cartridge has retained a small following ever since its introduction and continues to fascinate many hunters today. It has proven exceptionally well when used for long distance shots. In fact, the .257 Weatherby only has a drop of 21 inches at 500 yards and retains a massive 1,347 foot-pounds of force, creating enough stopping power for any medium-sized game in North America.

Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer.

It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
