6.5 Gibbs?

Anybody out there own or shoot the 6.5mm Gibbs?  It’s the 6.5-06 carried to its maximum case capacity.  I’ve been doing research into the various 6.5 wildcats and this one in particular has piqued my interest.

That’s a .270 on the left, 6.5 Gibbs on the right.
Ballistically, it’s supposed to push 140 grain bullets to 3100-3200 fps out of 24″ barrel, and the B.C. of the very good 140gr projectiles runs from about .580 to .612.

And it fits in a standard “long” action.
