257 Roberts

I've got a 257 Roberts in the Remington 700 Classic. It shoots most bullets with plenty of accuracy for a hunting rifle. The only bullet it has not handled well is the Barnes X bullet. For some reason this rifle just doesn't like them.
The best three shot group I ever shot was all in one hole with just a bit of cloverleaf going on.
Seems to be easy to load for and pleasant to shoot.

I shot a sub 1 inch groupa couple days ago with my first load with Nosler 110 Accubonds. I know there are better groups out there but keep in mind this is just an off the shelf rifle with no work done to it and fired by a somewhat sight limited old man. Genuinely pleased with this for a hunting load if I can duplicate this. This was shots 22-25 since the barrel had been cleaned.
