    Great cartridge for sure. I have had a Kimber for a few years and it is a joy to shoot, even took it's first deer last November.

    Great under rated cartridge.
    2 things
    1 the factory loading is underpowered.
    2 if u get one get a modern newish rifle.This way u will be able to take true advantage of the rounds capability.
    They make +p rounds for more modern guns.

    I have one, and love it. A pleasure to shoot, and lots of power for deer. I do handload, and that helps.

    I have a 25 : 06. Like it.
    It has worked quite well for me.
    I see no reason the .257 Roberts wouldn't be a good choice if the deal on the rifle is decent.

    257 Roberts is a great round with a truly glorious history. Necked down 7x57 what more needs to be said. Love mine; Winchester 70 Featherweight, Winchester 70 (pre 64) and Browning BLR 81. To me, I will take my 257 Roberts over a 243 for any game every time. I like the performance of 87/100/117 grain bullets in my rifles. It is also a beautiful looking cartridge with elegant lines. And I like being different. Ammo is easily available at gun stores or make your own. It is an easy cartridge to load.
