260 AAR ?

Hi all,
I am pretty new to reloading so please bare with me. I just sadly but happily inherited a few guns from my grandpa and have a question on one particular. It is a 6.5 caliber with 260 AAR stamped on the barrel. I'm wondering what exactly it is and where can I get dies for it? Is it an ackley cartridge? I do have a 6.5x57 and the two cartridges are basically the same with a little shoulder difference. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Re: 260 AAR ?

Here's what a guy over on shooters forum said:

"Your 6.5x257 Roberts AI..aka...260 AAR is one excellent choice for the 6.5 bullets....."

Isn't the 257 Roberts based on the 7X57 cartridge??

I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
