    257 Jackrabbit

    I figure I would make a thread on this, that way if someone comes across this rather odd case they can read about it.

    I had someone ask me to make this case, took some reasearch but all it is, is a 25-20 trimmed down to 1.155-1.150 in length. I have no clue as to the weapon used but it sure was one of the oddest request I've had in a while.

    So there you have....The 257 Jackrabbit
    Click to see what I'm doing and have available, this takes you to the VS (Vendor Sponsor) section of the site. Currently..25Rem,30Rem, 32Rem, 35Rem, 257Roberts, 358Win, 338Fed, 357 Herrett, 30 Herrett, 401 Winchester, 300Sav, 221 Fireball, 260Rem, 222Rem, 250 Savage, 8mm Mauser (AKA 8x57), 25-20WCF

    Most likely in a recylindered S&W revolver.
    The case length of “jack rabbit” is very close to that of .38spl.
