  1. Accurate and Lethal

    By Michigan Hunter February 28, 2018

    I used the 127 grain LRX in my 6.5-.300 Wby ULW for whitetails in Michigan in November 2017. A nice mature buck came out about 150 yards away facing towards me. It was the only shot I had and it was getting dark. I had been shooting this load and 1/2” 3 shot groups gave me the confidence to take the shot. One shot went through its neck and dropped dead in its tracks. This bullet held together at high velocity when other bullets might have failed. Wby Select Plus premium ammo is everything it’s claimed to be.

  2. 3 shot 3 dead deer

    By Chris February 08, 2018

    I was using the 127 grain Barnes LRX round. Took three shots and ended up with three dead deer. Mild recoil with this bullet. I think it could take any animal with this bullet.

  3. Awesome Rifle

    By Dave December 29, 2017

    I bought my Mark 5 this spring. Topped it off with a Nikon 4.5-18x40 Prostaff S. And shooting Weatherby factory Select Plus 130 Grain Swift Scirocco Ammo. I took her out in the field this hunting season and let her eat. Let’s just say she will be the only rifle for me next season

  4. Sendero Sizzler

    By Pistol Pete November 05, 2017

    Just put together my Terramark RC 6.5-300 with a Custom Shop Leupold VX5 3-15x44 CDS. Rifle shoots 140gr. Swift A-Frame so well, I had the knob cut using the data sheet. This round is a ROCKET!! will punch a hole through 6" steel gong at 400 yds. I can't wait to get into the box blind this year! Awesome rifle and round.

  5. Glad Weatherby Made this Caliber official

    By Bob October 09, 2017

    I've owned a 6.5STW since it was first introduced by Layne and needed to rebarrel after many years of great performance on game. Weatherby introduced the 6.5-300 at just the right time so I chose that chamber since STW brass was getting hard to come by. So far in load development it easily makes the specified velocities, and accuracy looks encouraging. My barrel likes the 127 grain Barnes LRX bullet the best so far. Barnes lists US869 as the preferred powder and my results indicate this is probably true. I may work up some Retumbo loads as well just to see but there really is no need to do so.
