So I’ve been procrastinating to no avail. Been trying to decide on which cartridge to select hoping one would be available at under a grand. It’s not happening.
.257 Roberts
6.5 Sweed.
7x57
One of these need to move in here, they are available on Gun Broker for about the same price, they are all a couple hundred more than I wanted to pay and I’ve been watching since late September, seem to be priced right in the market. I can’t buy all three. Which one?

I’d be in the 6.5 Or 7x57 camp myself. I love the little 6.5 Swede myself. Should be even slicker in a single shot.

The 6.5x55 would be the one I choose.

Any of them. :grin:

They're all great, classic, cartridges!

Hmm. Not much help, am I?

Not much Guy, not much. I don’t have anything in a 7mm. Might have to look at that.

I have a custom 725 Rem in 257 Rob and it is unbelievably accurate it has killed anything that I wanted to kill with it from rodents to big white tails.
I use to use it in heavy brush where I would only have a small space to put a bullet threw. It will get the job done.
So guess which one I would buy.

Since you don't have a 7mm, 7x57 would be a great choice that you can hunt deer, bear ànd elk with.

6.5x55 would be my choice since I have a bunch of .264 Bullets.

You didn't mention the barrel length. If it has a 26" tube I'd jump on the .257. Always wanted one, but too few chances to get one. The long tube would let you really get all out of the 257 that you could possibly hope for.

If it's 22'-24" I'd grab the 7X57. You don't have a 7mm now. I've never been without at least one for the past 50 yrs. (7X57, 7-08, 7RM)

I’ve never owned a 7. Just about everything else up to .577 nitro. I have moms old 722 in 257 Roberts, I have a 6.5 creedmore, just looked in the safe again no 7 anything. Hmmm, there are a couple of light sporters on the auction guess it’ll be a 7x57

I'd be happy as a clam with a good 7x57.. Awesome cartridge and just a bunch of fun to work with. Using modern powders and starting with 7-08 data wakes it up quite alot.

I have a #1AB in 7x57 and love it! That said I would also love to have a #1AB or #1A in 6.5x55.

The Ruger #1 I want is one of those limited run S" models in .275 Rigby. I also would like one of the .35 Whelens as well. I have one in 7x57, the "A" model and it has a 22" barrel. My 257 Roberts is on a "B" model and has a 26" barrel. Both are accurate shooters. I like the #1s but prices lately are I feel a bit out of line.

You can't really miss here...

I'd think a .275 Rigby would be hard to beat :grin:

Well, I have two in 7x57 and an RSI model in 6.5x55. All three are good shooters, with one of the 7x57’s being spooky accurate with Speer 145 boat tail bullets. I say grab a 7x57:)

Have you checked out the data in the latest Speer manual? They show some pretty warm loads for the 7x57. Makes that 2900 FPS 150 gr. Nosler load look like it's not all that bad after all. They show a load for the 175 gr. bullet at 2700 FPS. :shock: (y)

I have the manual but I haven’t seen the data. May have to check it out again. Been awhile since I have messed with my sons 7x57. Thanks Paul!

I have owned a 6.5x55 and I still miss it dearly. I do have a ruger african 275 rigby and I really really like it! Only worked up load with one bullet before deer season, but plan on trying several other bullets this summer. Since you dont have a 7mm might as well get the old 7x57. Loaded up to modern pressures they are awful stout.
