The thing about the .257 WM is it does outperform the .270 with lighter bullets( I have no experience with the 6.5). However as a hunting round the lighter bullets suck. When you move up to a good...

Cheap is cheap. A good quality lock is better than 100 bucks by itself and a flinter is about 50 more. A good quality barrel runs around 200-300. Most of the cost of a rifle build is in the stock so...

Another vote for the Marlin 60. Out of the box it will outshoot the Ruger and the bolt does lock back on the newer models.

No. You can spend I think 120 bucks and get it lettered from Colt and find out where it was shipped to but that won't be a person unless it was a special order. Probably a hardware store.

By default, that would be bottle necks like 25-20, 32-20, 38-40, 44-40, 30-30. Straight walled cases are a little more temperamental especially when using two different cartridges like .38 and .357....
