    There is one point of note regarding Remington 700's and short action vs. long action.

    re: the 257 Roberts was chambered by Remington in both action lengths. The 700 Mountain Rifle chambered in 257 Roberts is a short action while the 700 Classic in 257 Roberts is in a long action. It is a tight fit in a short action as is the 6mm Rem.

    All standard .257 Rob ammo feeds fine through the M700 Mtn Rifle, as it does through the Browning A-Bolt Micro. Remington also offered the .257 Roberts in the Model Seven Mannlicher, and it feeds and shoots well in that, too. The Model 700 Classic is on the same long action and 24-inch barrel as the .30-06, .270, etc. It also has a bit longer throat, so you can seat some long bullets out a bit further and get them out of the powder. I shoot the M700 Classic, which suits me, because it is just like my M700 SS and other M700s in .30-06 and .270 Win. But I really would like a small rifle with 22-inch barrel, like my friend's Kimber, as a carrying deer rifle.
