Re: 25 Gibbes
Maybe I can offer some input. Just from tinkering around with my numbers, it looks like the Gibbs has a similar powder/bore-area ratio as a .30-378, give or take, so if I were GUESSING, I'd say you could expect about the same number of rounds, or slightly less, given the smaller bore area <the heat transfer, from the way I understand it, is not directly proportional.> However, I have a friend that has been shooting a 25 Gibbs, and he is on his second season, and to my knowledge has over 1300 rounds through it. I have not seen any groups of his posted in some time, although last I saw, it was still posting sub-1/2 MOA groups on occasion <shooter error brings in the "occasion" term! [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] .> He was running...H870, I think, with Sierra's 120gr. BTs. I don't know the exact charge, but I guess it was around 70+ grains. He's using a 28" Krieger, I believe. Hope that helps you some.
