The .257 Roberts round is a long action round and requires that for an action like the .257 Cabela's 50th Anniversary Special Edition rifle. A short action round would be one like a .308 and if that is what you want or need, I suggest a 7mm08 which was touted on the internet as the cure for the magnum addiction. Both the .257 Roberts and the 7mm08 are excellent rounds for anything other than real big game. The action is not blocked to my knowledge.

The .257 Roberts is a long action weapon. The round was made by Ned Roberts in 1930 something . It has taken just about every big game in north America. It is a great weapon to have . The only down fall is you might have some problems finding ammo for it . So reloading your own might be best.

Winchester made the rifle. They say it is long action, Chuck Hawk's lists it as long action, Jack O'Connor listed it as long action in his rifle book. How did it get to be a Cabela's Best Answer as a short action???

answer 3
The Cabela's 50th Anniv. Model 70 Special Edition .257 Roberts is exactly 42 and 1/2 inches total length with its 22 inch barrel and the Winchester red recoil pad. The recoil pad could be slimmed down by going to a thinner recoil pad as the recoil from the sweet shooting .257 Roberts is so forgiving. But anyone would be first advised to use the rifle as built first because it doesn't get any better than this!
