    OK folks....... I need some help.Only got one reply earlier in another forum at this site. Does a 700 exist in Lefty 257 Roberts? I'm a lefty having to shoot a righty. Can it be done? What do you know and like/hate about the round?
  2. I like the round a lot. The .257 is the first metallic cartridge I ever loaded. The Sierra 120 HPBT is a wonderful bullet and H414 works wonderfully with this.

    I have one that is suped up into the PO Ackley Imp. It is in the Rem Mod 700 Limited Classic. It is a right handed and I also shoot left handed. I don't have any trouble with it, in fact I can shoot it faster than a left handed throw. The .257 hasn't let me down yet and I have shot several deer with it. The 100gr Sierra does a number on these Texas white-tails. It scoots along at about 3200fps. A regular Roberts will get you around 3000fps.
