All of my .257 Roberts' rifles have had long actions because that's how they came, not because that's how I wanted them. The Ruger Hawkeye has quite a short throat so the extra magazine room is wasted as I can't seat the bullet out any longer than the lands allow with the bullet seated 30 thou off. Interestingly, a .257 Roberts cartridge will fit easily into my Ruger .308 magazine box, indicating that the Roberts would work fine in a short action. I usually stick to 100gn bullets in the Roberts and have larger .25 cals to shoot heavier bullets. The 100gn Hornady and Ballistic Tips for all round use and the 100gn Scirocco if I want to beef the load up a bit. The 100gn Partition was a good bullet also, but I've run out and have enough Sciroccos to last me years.

The nice thing about the .257 Roberts is its versatility. If it's in a short-action, it's really easy to rebarrel to 6.5 Creedmoor. If it's based upon a long action, it's no problem to ream out to 25-06.

A decade+ back my mom passed, leaving her house for me to sell. That year I must have spent $20k on guns. One of them is my beloved Glen Morovits custom pre 64 M70 I happened to fall into. Since I was young I'd wanted a rifle with drop dead gorgeous wood. I had plans to have one built but the gent on the phone, who had a pre 64 action for sale, asked what I wanted with the action, so I told him. Several hours later his email with 40 some pics arrived in my in-box. With each picture my jaw kept hitting the floor. The sale was made and a week later, the rifle, in hand, looked even better in my hands. At first, it was a "temperamental whore" as Charley Santoni put it. Eventually, I learned how to treat her with the right bullets, powder and shooting tempo. Me, my son and step son have only hunted doe mule deer and cow elk, each of us having harvested said animals; of course more by my hand. It has a few dings in the wood which can easily be removed, if I want, but each brings memories of hunts past. Pretty sure my son will inherit the rifle upon my demise but I plan on that being in nearly 40 yrs. The wood to metal fit is "un-godly tight" so accuracy has never been stellar; "sufficient" is what I call it. It loves the Nosler 115 BT 120 PT but since I now work for Barnes Bullets, it's fed the 100 gr TTSX and a new bullet which will be soon released to the shooting publics eye. It's not light but it's certainly not as heavy of some LR shooters "haul" into the mountains and pastures. The main picture was taken by Charley Santoni while he had it in his possession, trying to figure out why it was being "termpermental"; his words, by the way. He also said it was the finest example of custom workmanship he'd seen in his years.

That rifle is stunning but if you don't start talking about work.... Well, lets just say there's an ugly side to the campfire. grin

Picked up new brass and new dies for the 257 Roberta. When the snow melts where i shoot i might jave to give it a trial. I really wish there was a way to find out what kind of stock i have. It has a modern composite lightweight job but ive no idea the origin. Has been rebarreled and action seems very smooth. Anxious to see what the fuss is all about

I have a .250 Savage (Ruger Ultralight), 2 x Roberts', a .257 Ackley and a .25-06. The Roberts' are the ones I use the most. Just a good size case with enough power for pigs and fallow bucks and not too big to shoot a few foxes either.

I just puked in my mouth. Somewhere,somehow it's got to be a crime to rebarrel a 257 Bob to a 6.5 manbun. Lol

It may come as a surprise to you, but that is where everyone pukes.

GSSP, That is my idea of the perfect rifle.

Is that wolf really chewing on a fore leg while you're trying to take photos?

Ask him when .358s will be available as well. My Whelen loves 180grs.
