This is the first year I will be hunting with my new browning lever action .257 roberts. My question is does anyone else own one and how do you like it.If so what load are you shooting. I am shooting 117 grain spire points. It is a pleasure to shoot and very accurate. The deer better look out -010-9-8

Great round i like it alot it is just unfortunate that it did not catch on popularity wise, but it is a great deer round in my opinion.

It shoots great with no recoil. Is the 117 grains bullets the best for deer or should I shoot something different. Any suggestions.
