Wow! I feel really bummed now. I was thinking this BRNO in 257 Roberts would be a great rifle for Muleys/Blacktails up to about 300 yds, but after reading what Savage 99 says, I think I better dump it!! I will go back to my 250-3000, I know its a proven killer!

Kenster99, that BRNO is a very nice looking rifle!

To the OP. I have a Model 70 XTR in .257 Roberts. It was my first rifle, given to me by my father. It also took my first deer. Mine shoot 120 partitions into tight little groups. Not that you need a 120 grain partition for whitetail. I really love the cartridge and would recommend it to anyone. It's usually the rifle I use to introduce friends into centerfire rifles after they get used to a 22LR.

I'm a fan of all quarter bores especially the 25-35, the 250-3000 and the 257 Roberts. Just picked up an Win. M70 XTR in the "Bob" recently. Plan to shoot 100 gr. TSXs in 257 +P loadings.

I'll get pics up in the next few days after I scope the rifle. smile

Its a shame that they don't make a lever action in 257. Oh well, my 30-30 is still the BEST.

The .30 WCF does a fine job, no doubt about that. As a matter of fact, I keep a .257 Roberts AND a .30-30 around the house for deer hunting.

What kind of glass do you have on your Marlin there?

Actually Browning did make some BLR's in .257 Bob. I kick myself for letting one pass by in a gunshow and not buying it.
