The idea of a "classic" .257Roberts in a "classic" deep blue/Walnut satin finish rifle. Since then, always been one shot one kill. Choose the more powerful 308 Winchester because: 257 Roberts if you keep the shots under 78 yards. Good point.

I like heavier bullets for better penetration on game. In the last three years, I have been dabbling with a .257 Roberts.

The deer family; whitetail, blacktail and mule deer, are easily switched off in that their nervous systems are highly susceptible to shock, unlike elk, moose and caribou. I've got to throw my vote in for the .308.

Having once toted an M-14, I would not care to hunt with one.


Sufficient powder capacity to get good velocity. I have been looking for a Winchester Model 70 (1947) with one of these cartridges. I've killed deer with both, I couldn't tell a difference (dead is dead), and as someone posted above, "the deer won't know the difference". Let’s take a look at the two, and compare and contrast their strengths and weaknesses. Ammo it not the issue here, there is not to much in the way of Big Game hunting in North America were you would be at a disadvantage by shooting a Bob, I can think of only two were I would want more gun, and in those two cases I would want at least a .30-06. I'M including a spring a string and a sharp stick ( that would be bows for those of you in Rio Linda).

117's shoot better in my Bob so that's what I load. It handles a broad range of bullet weights w/a bore size that is about ideal for BC especially using heavier bullets.

Mag. Neidner released a very similar cartridge—the .25 Neidner—in 1920; both were (obviously) sound designs, giving unprecedented velocities for their time, considering the limits of the smokeless powders of the day. I have a Bob, a .250 Sav, and several .308's. You are ignore Mikey, but I read your post just to see the lies.

Powered by UBB.threads™ PHP Forum Software 7.7.3. I've killed several deer with my .257, and dad has killed a pile more with his, from 30 yards to 200+. Both of these cartridges have, unfortunately, fallen by the wayside. The hottest .243 Winchester factory load I was able to identify for the article The .243 Winchester: Its Capabilities as a Deer Cartridge specs out as follows. Pushing a 117- or 120-grain bullet to 2700 fps or more makes for a great load for deer and antelope that is really easy on the shoulder and allows for not only accurate shot placement, but a pleasurable shooting experience. As noted, either will do, but I prefer the larger, heavier bullets of the 7mm-08. Went hunting with it in Alaska while stationed there for two years. vs. .300 WSM • .223 Remington vs. .22-250 Remington. A huge buck will weigh under 200lbs live weight. Does it come with some inherent issues? A great often overlooked cartridge. It is in a 1948 Model 70 with a pretty nice piece of wood and a Shilen barrel. Put me in the Bob camp. And one will probably light one's fire more than the other. For both medium and large game... a .280 Remington is about ideal. But they must be gay. There are a fair number of 6.5mm cartridges that will meet or exceed the Roberts.
Good Ole 270!
It is a flat shooter and not affected muchly by the wind.

Will do no less than the 257, only more. someone give me an education on the Roberts(vs.308) Thanks fellas! I once had a Remington ADL 30-06 that I purchased as a 2LT in the U.S. Army. and 59 sec.

"The Bigger the Government, the Smaller the Citizen" - Dennis Prager. Magnum Man. Powered by UBB.threads™ PHP Forum Software 7.7.3. I enjoy shooting the 257, but mostly for varmints.

I'd go for the 308.

If your aspiring to be considered a rifle loony,your failing.You need atleast one of everything(but not neccessarily forever) and sometimes 2 or 3 of rifles chambered for the same cart is not excessive. Back to MY original topic. That should work. If you really want "oddball" don't go for standard chamberings. My experience is if you shoot'em in the chest they all work well, if you shoot'em in the butt, not so much.

For medium/large game... need penetration as well as energy. Only way of improving my setup is if the .257 was in the Kimber. I shoot both factory ammo and handloads. It won't kill 'em any better, but it's TWENTY-FIVE caliber! From antelope to moose. Looking for previous installments of our "Head to Head" series? Why not just get a 223? I only have five 308's I can think of real quick, so I can't argue too much. It’s a belted magnum, but the belt is nothing more than a carryover from the H&H design—where it was used for headspacing those slope-shouldered cartridges—and has nothing to do with strength whatsoever. His brainchild was developed in the 1920s, but Remington slightly modified the case and legitimized the cartridge in 1934, honoring Mr. Roberts by attaching his name to their new offering. Granted he did not have a Roberts but a 336 Marlin(that he still hunts with to this day BTW) but I digress. I have a 18 year old Ruger Mark I Varmint Special in .243 While .243 is not the best caliber for shooing groundhogs, it is the most available groundhog caliber in gunshops around here. The .257 Roberts, also known as .257 Bob, is a medium-powered .25 caliber cartridge. No issues. I wouldn't think there's much difference. I thought luck was opportunity meeting a prepared mind.

Go with the .308 if you plan to shoot one in the rear shoulder from a golf cart.

Title pretty much says it all. I don't see anything "cool" about a cartridge that is older than most of us here on this forum. One 70yd and the other a measured 313yd. I didn't want to get in,'s too hot (weather) to go out.

Yes, it does. Both th 25 cal and the 6.5 have never gained the following that they deserve except in 6.5 Creedmoor .

after it's officially dark. It is easy on the shoulder, and very effective for animals up to the size of deer and black bear.

The .308 or '06 would be my choices for all around North American rifle, but for whitetails alone the Bob seems perfect. I have killed deer with both and as someone said.

I shoot a 7.5 pound 270 winchester with a midddling load of H4831 and a 130 bullet at about 2900FPS, I can tell the difference between this and a 180 at about 2900 out of a 300 WSM. I have a 257roberts in a hunting rifle and an Encore pistol. I shoot a 6.5 x 55 a lot so this whole thread is nothing more than its the end of July and unless you live in Alaska, hunting season dose not start for another month and a half. I really like my .30-06, .45-70's, etc. Mag. If I could only own one rifle I'd lean toward the .30-06. The Roberts kills better than it should..... We need to get this thing settled - forget the .257 RBTS and the .308 WIN - I learned right here on the Campfire (from Ingwe) that the only round that really rates is the .270 WIN.

Hornady 100 grain bullet, 44 grains 4350. bullet at 3115 fps. I have two but have yet to take a deer with that cartridge.

Split the difference and get the best of both worlds...a 7mm-08. Your question is comparing apples to oranges, you need both they are not the same. I would go 308, but that's just me. Have both and my .257 is still a deer virgin, dammit! I'm going to give the Remington Model 7 in 7mm-08 with 140 gr partitions a try next month in Maine.. Hmmm... which one would you rather have for shooting 300 lb mule deer? Have used hot shot fancy bullets over hotted up handloads. I thought that country looked familiar..... Well I vote for the 257 Bob. The .25-06 Remington came first, dating back to as early as 1912, when Charles Newton necked the .30-06 Springfield case down to hold the .257″ diameter bullets from the earlier .25-caliber cartridges. Campfire Tracker. Are there clear advantages to using the 100? See I told you so. I had one in 700 Remington Classic that just loved 140gr Hornady boattails.
