Combined with high Ballistic Coefficient (BC) projectiles designed for long range shooting, the velocity of the 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum opens a whole new world of possibilities and provides hunters with the terminal performance every Weatherby shooter is accustomed to.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Is what they say it is

    By Calibercollector September 22, 2017

    I had one built off a vanguard action that was originally a 300wby. While its a 1" gun with the 127 and 130gr factory loads its a single hole cluster with 130gr berger vld hunting bullets. Giving my 26 nosler to the boy and keeping this for myself, its a winner.

  4. sounds like a nice flat shooting round

    way to go Weatherby

  5. 6.5X300 Weatherby

    By 450 #2 nitro Express April 21, 2017

    I wanted one of these since the late 60s when the original pennsylvania 1000 yd. club were using them. I have owned one since 2001 and must like it because it is on its third barrel. It is very flat and deadly. One must chose his bullet wisely if using on game as it will over stress ordinary bullets. If you need the flatest hardest hitting caliber, this is the one for you. All my barrels have been 28" in length so achieving factory ballistics is a cake walk.
