Re: Information on .25 Gibbs
I have had both the standard .25-06 and the AI version. Both kill coyotes, deer and chucks like hot lightening. If I were going Gibbs or .25-06 AI I would definately recommend at least a 26" barrel. You would probably not gain much by going Gibbs other then more trouble fireforming brass and the more brass you have to "make" the less barrel life you'll have. I'd go either standard .25-06 or the AI version. If you want more horse out of a .257 caliber, chamber for a Weatherby. As suggested, you may consider the 6.5-06 or AI version, because of better bullets and better B.C.'s.
