Re: Quarter bore and 6.5mm wildcat ???s
Several years ago, probably in Shooting Times magazine, possibly Guns & Ammo.........one of the magazines' regular writers did article on a .257 Weatherby that he had built. I think the author was Rick Jamison, not sure. Anyway, this particular rifle was built using "gain-twist" rifling. It was a delicious article.....just almost too good to be true, in terms of the velocity and grouping ability he got. The velocity was absolutely amazing, for the amount of powder burnt, and the barrel length.
I wish I knew of the exact source of that article, cuz I have often thought of it since reading it. I know when I read it, I thought to myself "If this rifle was for sale, I would buy it this second!"
Maybe one of our members can post details about the source of the article.
