A caliber that you just HATE!

I would like to hear about calibers that you just hate or don't understand why anyone would want it because there are better calibers that just out perform it.Mine would be the 257 Roberts don't know why anyone would want this caliber just so many calibers around it that out perform it.I know it has a big following but I don't understand it. Another one for me would be the .308 don't know why anyone would get one of those either considering the choices around it.

Never saw the point of the .256 Win. The .30 carbine is another I don't understand.

BTW I love the Roberts.

Re: A caliber that you just HATE!

even though i had some (finally got rid of the last one) i have to say the 308 being my most hated chamber. eventhough my screen name derived from it....i still dont like it. if i was worried about saving money, maybe i would like it. the 30-30 and 30-06 are runner-ups.

Re: A caliber that you just HATE!

Never saw a cartridge I 'hated'. Never saw a cartridge I didn't want.

38-55, 30-40, 219 zipper, 25-35, 25-20 all have a great purpose.

except maybe the 270 and the 7mm mag!

Re: A caliber that you just HATE!

Hate? I dunno.
But I am sick and tired of the .270 winchester.
I get it , some folks are to sensitive for the 30-06.
No shame in it , but the 30-06 can slap the 270 around like a redheaded step child and that's just how it is.
