Gallery Rifle No. 101 on our Gallery Page is our latest Doctari Professional Rifle in 505 Gibbs, and it is stunningly beautiful. This is actually an experimental rifle with a much faster 1:10 rate of twist. Typically, the 505 Gibbs cartridge is given a 1:16 rate of twist, but we have always recommended 1:14 to allow for heavier 650 grain bullets as they become available. There is a growing school of thought; however, that even faster rates of twist on these very large bore bullets improves the straightness of travel after penetration. That extra speed of rotation is not needed for stability or accurate travel in air, but in very large game, appears to aid in maintaining straight travel to the vital areas rather than wandering after impact. This Doctari Rifle was commissioned by a customer engaged in this research, and we are eagerly awaiting the field test results.
We have new and very beautiful rifles just posted to the Rifles Now/Current Inventory page at significant discounts. Take a look. More are coming later in the year in 270 Win., 7x57, 300 Win., 9.3x62 Mannlicher, 416 Rem. and Doctari 450 Rigby.
