I have a .257 Roberts my dad built off of a Mauser action I'll post pics when I get home, sweet rifle but it weighs 3x as much as my .308 but I don't really mind

I have killed a spike elk with my 25.06. I don't recommend that to anyone here, as they probably don't have the patience and skillz to get as close to the game as I can.

But for antelope, deer, and any varmint that walks the earth, you best get under ground when you see me packing my Sako.

So, How many times does it take you editing to piss people off even more??

Grow up.

Geez, you didn't even give me a chance to finish being sarcastic...

OK, you go on implying "the .257 Roberts is" the equivalent of "the 7x57. .30-06" and "8x57."

All anybody, including the OP, has to do is, as I said, GO LOOK AT A SHELF OF AMMUNITION. If the .257 Roberts doesn't make a respectable appearance, I recommend not buying that particular bargain.

It's almost as if you are arguing For my side!
The attached pic is of that obsolete Rolling Block action that you mention (before yr mid-stream edit) chambered to shoot full-power Hornady 308 rounds! I see my point is nicely being made without further input, I'll just sign off & ride toward the Rockies. It's been fun, as always! 6.5 Swede

a lot of cartidges have regional popularity. with my LGS stocking 257 Roberts in another town and two pawn shops carrying it in the town i live near, i can't see them stocking ammo that doesn't sell. that is just not good business sense. my sources of ammo for my 280 Rem. i would have to drive out of town to my LGS, as no one carries it where i live. many years ago, when i did own a 257 Roberts, i never had a problem getting ammo and i didn't even reload back then. reloading offers up options not afforded to those who only shoot factory ammo. as a reloader, i am not at the mercy of what ammo is stocked and what isn't.

Swede, I have many myself from Civil War breechloader thru 7mm Mauser. I took a position on one dying cartridge in the final gasps of life and people go ballistic as though the center of their life has been exposed for the odd and less-meaningful menagerie.

Bite your tongue, Anna!
And look behind you... that's me 20ft behind you!!!

Closest that I stalked was 6 paces from a huge 6x7.
Had worked my way into his noon-bedding sanctuary (38 rubs) then cut loose with a spiker squeal- almost got in trouble!

Humor me please, this is just a diversion of the mind for me.
You wouldn't have heard above/below? the 49th but Alberta is being hit with a mini-Katrina deluge. Trans-Canada hiway out, evacuations everywhere & I've got 10 family members in the midst. All there is on Alberta Outdoors sites is warnings of more to come!
