A few weeks ago when I had my 740 for sale, I got a phone call from a guy asking for details.  We talked quite a while, a very knowledgeable man with a varied background in revolvers.  He mentioned that he had a Dan in .257 Roberts.  I invited him to join the forum and he seemed interested but I haven't seen his user name yet so I thought I'd mention it.  I think he said he had the barrel for it (15-2 frame) and wanted to get a cylinder chambered for it.  I suggested he contact DW in Norwich.  I hope he joins so he can fill in the details of how he acquired the gun. I thought it sounded like an interesting project.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Would that round fit in a 15-2 frame? Does sound interesting. OAL somewhere around 2.70 - 2.775

To quote Brian Williams, I may have 'mis remembered' this.  I thought he said 257 maybe I'm mistaken, either that or his story was BS.  I hope he joins and sets the record straight.

Either way, the PSI for the Bob is 54,000 PSI - no revolver will handle that, which I know of.  The 454 Casull runs 50K cup.  Could be an interesting discussion.  22 Hornet would be neat....

Ron,

     I pick-up that 445 conversion to 22 Hornet that was offered on the forum, but only have fired a few rounds once so far but it's fun to shot.

Does anyone have any info on this cartridge? There's no Wikipedia page with dimensions and such.

I'm guessing someone's version of a 22 Remington Jet... or maybe a 256 WM?

I do.... I just need to figure out where I put it !!!  I do remember there were chamber adapters that went with the invicta barrels.

OK, I think I see what he was talking about.  That .257 Invicta must be what he has.  Still a nice unique item.
