Summary of Material:
  • This is a Book reproduced in a high resolution PDF format on CD-ROM. The Gibbs line of wildcat cartridges has aroused curiosity since the mid-1960s. Handloaders expound and argue the velocity claims and cartridge designs of Rocky Gibbs. Other than this book, only tidbits of information are available. Gibbs had developed his interest in handloading while a member of the Richmond, California, Rod and Gun Club. His competitive nature led to an intense desire to produce a cartridge that was bigger, better, faster and more complete than any other. He was severely criticized for his cartridge case design. Nearly everyone complained about the minimum length of the case necks. Gibbs was also accused of inflating the Gibbs cartridge velocities. He never gave in or broke down in the face of these ongoing controversies. He was willing to risk his reputation to prove he had maximized the available space in a .30-06 case. Whether he accomplished his goal of producing the finest cartridge available is up to each handloader to decide. When it comes to velocity, "a Gibbs chambered rifle with a standard barrel makes a magnum with a short barrel just another rifle."
