The reason the .257 Roberts took a back seat for so many years is because Remington chambered it in their short action 722 bolt. Of course a short action would not allow the cartridge to reach it's true potential. Winchester also brout out the .243 and touted it as better than the .257 Roberts. The .243 never was as good a cartride. Use a long action and throat the .257 to .300 and you have a real perfomer.
