I have a 240 Gibbs that I just LOVE, 115 Bergers at 3250 +/- , has taken Antelope at 485, 610, and 870 yds and several deer and antelope at lesser distances. Use '06 Lapua brass and Retumbo.

I have all the gibbs based cartridges from 240 to 338 except the 270. They are all very good cartridges.

Re: 270 gibbs

Why don't you have the 270 gibbs it was the most popular of them all wan't it? Ya mine shoots a 130 tsx barnes at 3375 over 65 gr of reloder 22 and cci200 primer out of a tc encore pro hunter. This load works in my gun but recommend orking up to that load. So how does the 25 gibbs shoot and what load. Do you have any of the reamers for those cartridges?

Re: 270 gibbs

Could you post a pic of the Gibbs next to a normal 270 Win? I would like to see the difference in shoulders and neck.

Thanks,
Tank
