Question on .257 Roberts/6.5x51 Compatability

2002 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  CW
I was curious, since Lee doesn't make a 6.5 Arisaka crimp die (they do for 7.7mm), would a .257 Roberts crimp die work? I seem to recall that they were similar cartridges and many a T38 was converted to hunting rifles in that caliber.
What say the Reloading Gurus?

Thanks for all the info Gents! I have used the 7.7 crimp die sporadically, but with good results when I needed it. I'll check on Lee's sight and see if I can get a price quote.
