    257 Roberts Factory Ammo

    Hello all, anyone know of anyone selling 257 Roberts ammo currently?

    scrumbag, the .257 Roberts is a bit uncommon here, let alone over there in the UK, I suspect. Is yours a factory rifle, or a rebarrel job?

    Mate of mine has a .257 he's now reloading but Hornady 117Grn SSTs were easily available. Best ammo he's put through it was old stock Winchester silvertip 100Grn from the early '70s !

    I load the 117-gr Hornady, SPT and RN. The Remington CoreLokt ammunition with the 117-gr RN is pretty mild, at 2,650 fps, but really shoots through game with complete mushroom and not much meat damage. Very accurate in my rifle, too. I know several people who hunt almost exclusively with their Rem 700 Mountain Rifles, and use the Hornady Light Magnum 117-gr SST ( now Superperformance) for shots out at 200 yards on deer, but handload light bullets for woodchucks and coyotes.

    I should think with a specification like that it will be total rubbish!!! You will have to give it to me to save posting it to Muir.

    No. They are just so worth commandeering!

    Let me know how that works out. I found a kilo bottle of N150 in the back of a gunstore being move and selling old stuff, for $20.00. My M700 Classic .257R has a 24-inch barrel, and will push 117s at 2,900 fps with 4831. I have not tried VV powders in it, but N-160 should do well. I think N-150 would do well with 100-gr Speer and 110-gr Accubond.

    I could do with some .257 brass
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama
