    257 Roberts Lee Loader

    Hello Guys

    I have a nice original 257 Roberts Lee Loader (the hand tools that don't require a press) that is surplus to requirements (its been sitting on my desk since the last forum discussion about lee Loaders).

    $40 posted BUT if you put up a picture of a really nice 257 Rifle, or make a good case I'll consider a "pay it forward" sort of arrangement (at my discretion!).

    I'd also swap for some good 260 brass or 6.5 123gn Hornady sst's.

    Cheers

    I don't think you will see a nicer 257 Roberts
    If I had somewhere to use her - I would happily take your Lee Hand Loader for $40
    But I have plenty of hand loads from prev owner - so please pass onto someone else

    This is the nicest rifle I have ever held

    Stunning rifle and great calibre. I would be scared of marking though.
