Yeah, thanks. I emailed that guy. We're doing 1,000 to 2,000 cast bullets but I would like to get some jacketed 60 grains before they all disappear.

Why would they disappear? Are you seriously looking? If so I may have some, I will look in my stockpile.

Are they for a handgun or .257 Roberts?

The son-in-law and I have model 62 Marlins in 256 Win Mag. The grandkids love them. I also have a semi-auto 256 Ferret that is like an M1 Carbine but in a .25 caliber, again the 256 Win Mag. Only one over the counter bullet was sold for the 256 Win Mag, a 60 gr round nose open point round by Winchester. The magazines and feed ramps on both rifles don't like pointed bullets and the guns perform best with projectiles under 75 gr..uh..not the weight, but the length being the issue.

The 60 grain jacketed bullets are for rabbit and varmint hunting. I have cast bullets for plinking.

I don't know why they're discontinued but I bet there's a box of them here and there all over the country.

thanks bowgy

Ok, my father-in-law owned a sporting goods store in the 50's and 60's and when he passed away I acquired all of the left over shooting and reloading supplies. I know that there were some boxes of .257 Roberts Winchester X factory loaded ammo, that's why I asked, there are quite a few bullet calibers that I don't use, I will look through it and see if I have any.
