257 roberts improved?

Not sure where to ask this, but here seemed good.

Can I shoot 257 Robert's from a sportorized Mauser chambered in 257 Robert's Improved?

Re: 257 roberts improved?

My best friend has a 257 Roberts improved.He has been shooting regular 257 Roberts rounds.I told him to buy dies and I will load them for him.My point is if you buy a gun that doesn't use shelf ammo you need to be prepared to reload.In the begining you spend some money.Later on you can shoot more because it is cheaper.I myself am just getting into rifle loads.Mom ain't happy but I will be.Reloading can be quite rewarding as well.I prefer RCBS products but that's me.I have small things from other companies.My dies and press are RCBS though.Others may form an opinion or give you advice.Iniatally you will spend a few bucks.After that it's generally much cheaper.
