RSA, Botswana, CAR, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Kenya way back when, and a few others that I can't remember.
My favorite brass is PPU, my favorite rifle is a Renner special in 7x57..PPU brass is cheaper than dirt and lasts forever with max loads..I buy a couple of hundred at a time and let that work for a long time..but one can make 7x57 brass from 257 Robts, 280, 270, 35 Whelen, 6mm, 30-06 and a host of others resize and trim..

probably a better subject would be 270 vs 280.
but then the answer would be obvious.
the 280 is a non magnum that picks up on the best points of both the 7x57 and 270.
trajectory and bullets.
bruce.
Then in that case it would have to be the 7x64 Brenneke! ;)

I LOVE BOTH, THE 270 HAS BEEN MY GO TO FOR SMALLER NA GAME FOR YEARS BUT IVE KILLED SEVERAL THINGS WITH 275 RIGBY (7X57) AND IT WAS MY DADS FAVORITE "LIGHT" RIFLE FOR YEARS!
THAT AND A 470NE DOUBLE AND PRE-64 375 KILLED EVERYTHING THAT WALKED IN FRONT OF HIM!

The 270 is gone cause we went into lockdown again we'll check cause now there are another two 7/57's so we are going to shoot all three on Saturday and make our decision from there.
There's now a cheap .22 so that's for sure and well clean it up, get the rust off and re-do the stock.
