Yes it is called 25 souper, simply a 308 necked down to 25 caliber

would this be......

very much improvement over a 257 roberts or a 250 savage? i suppose the 308 case would hold more powder but would it make that much improvement that it would be worth all the custom set-up?

I have a PTG reamer for a 25-08 AI. But I can offer no advice as it is unused for now.

I'm sure with good brass the 25 Souper would run with the 257 Roberts improved but the "Bob" will have more capacity but the 25 Souper will be shorter and likely feed from a SA a bit better with long bullets , and it will certainly outrun the 250 Ackley.

I like the 250 Ackley because it can be loaded to run with factroy 25-06 loads and from a very short very effecient case meaning that a shorter barrel can be used. This will be my sons first deer rifle chambered in a 20" light barreld Encore
