Re: Groundhogs beware!

ok, bob the stock I can handle, the cat hates my guts, last time I petted her, 4 years ago she bit me, we now have an understanding, I let her live cause she's the mrs cat, no other reason. after I took the pic she growled and blowed all night.

    All cats have the same first name around here, "Damn".

    Ditto bb's stock pic request.

    Its namesake was rocky gibbs, he developed 7 or 8 cartridges from 24 to 338 all based on a 06 case improved to the absolute max.
    its a 30/06 with the shoulder pushed forward far enough that it has one caliber of neck length and sharpened to 35 degrees

    Here is a 30-06, .30 Gibbs and 30-06 Ackley Imp comparison photo. My local smith has a 6.5 Gibbs reamer and I've really been thinking of having one made.

    James.

    Do you know the weight of water it takes to fill a 6.5 Gibbs case to the mouth??


    I'd like to compare the case volume to the .264 WM.

    Dan, if the reamer is based on a 270 case it will have a longer neck to support those long bullets.

    What bullet are you planning to use??

    While you were waiting for your 6.5 Gibbs to be finished, I was waiting for my Sendero-II, .264WM to be "delivered" (took nine months from the time ordered).

    I picked up mine about 6 weeks ago and got a little shooting in on it before the weather fell.

    I'm using the 95 V-Max and so far running 3700, with very good accuracy.

    While working up groups, I got to 3800 with no signs of pressure.

    I bought the rifle for feral dogs and yotes. I wanted something more effective then the 300WM/178 V-Max combo I was using before.

    Let us know what you are getting when you shoot it... not a lot of Gibbs around any more.
