I own a number of rifles in 257R, 6.5S, and 7x57.

There is not much difference between them, but I shot 4 deer in November with the Roberts.
I chambered that rifle in September, that is the 5th rifle in 10 years to use that reamer. That is a 26" Shilen SS select match barrel in #3 taper. My favorite barrel to build with. It finished at 24".

I am mostly shooting prone with a bipod at up to 500 yards... ~ every other year a shot out the window of the vehicle.

What does it all mean?
Smaller bore and more powder for long range.
Larger bore and less powder for short range.

"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
