A friend bought himself a new GBL and one 20rd box of Leverevolution 325gr ammo. I believe the box stated 2025 MV. He asked me if I would like to try it out with him. We set up a target that we shot at from 25 yards up to about 100 yards away. He loaded up and proceeded to shoot. He went through one in chamber and a full mag tube before he called it a day. Watching him shoot ya could tell that rifle was kicking pretty hard. I finished the box, but that felt recoil was serious stuff. I will admit to being bruised pretty good and there was no benchrest shooting. We were either sitting or standing so we could roll with the movement of the rifle. Everyone expects some recoil, but I do not intend to go out of my way to shoot that ammo again anytime soon. I get the feeling that the pursuit of smaller bullets with higher velocities is something people do just because they can. I believe there are plenty of long time hunters on this site who will tell ya that there are better ways to do it with larger bullets.
