Re: Information on .25 Gibbs

The 25 GIBBS - the speeds are quoted from a book on the GIBBS line . 26" barrel , 1 x10 twist , ( 117 gr ) - 3332, 3317 , 3295, 3285 - (100 gr) - 3545 , 3510, 3502 ,3505 - (87 gr ) - 3784 , 3789, 3768, 3762- (75gr ) - 3902, 3897, 3897 , 3861. Ray Romain (814)265-1948 chambers these - the 06 case was the base for these with the case blown forward about .040 with a shoulder of 30 to 35deg depending on caliber. Ray uses 06 or the 270 case which are longer .046 longer than the 06 case . a powder increase of 8 to 10 grains is the result , increased powder - increased speed.
the ones I've been looking at are the 6.5 and the 30 calibers . several people on this site have used these wildcats with great success , magnum speed all on 30-06 brass - good luck

Sorry but I am being blocked from send you a PM with my e-mail address. Any suggestions on how I can get through, I'd love to get my hands on the Gibbs info. I called Ray R. yesterday and he is really fired up over the 30 Gibbs but I think it is over kill for my use. He did suggest the 284 cal. or (7MM Gibbs) great selection of high BC pills and in 26" tube with 1 in 9 twist might do just fine. However, would still like to get the Gibbs info. any suggestions.

Thanks

Re: Information on .25 Gibbs

PDR - The 30 and 7 mm are popular because it's easy to rechamber , find a good used varmint or bench rest barrel in 308 , 7x57 ,7x08 ,260 , and for little money Ray will rechamber for a gibbs . several on this site have done this .and you end up with a very good product . My Problem is I want the speed but I'd rather shoot than make cases ,I'm having a 6.5x284 being chambered as we speak on a 700 long action , but I still like the idea of using the 06 case as a base for a go fast rifle. The AI versions of 25-06 ,270,280 and 06 , really are excellent , and you can shoot ,hunt with standard store bought even while fire forming the cases , and you can't do that with any of the Gibbs , also try Hawk Industries they do 06 based cases.

Try R & R Angus Cattle Production 181 S. Bolden Hill RD Greenbrier, Arkansas 72058-9022 and Thanks in advance. I may be as old as you are as I was shooting the 22/250 and the 25/06 in the early 60's before they became factory rounds. So I too may be an Old Fart. Love to talk guns, reloading and wildcats. The Gibbs line has interested me for some time but can't find any info. so what ever you can pass my way is appreciated.

Thanks
AIRBORNE
