Weatherby will offer three different options with in loaded ammo for the 6.5-300, muzzle velocities ranging from 3531-3395, featuring Barnes or swift bullets. article American Hunter. pg 36

I think the most popular is the 6.5/300win mag

Most popular was 6.5x284 then 260, now 6.5 CM probably due to great factory ammo. And dont forget the ever so faithful 6.5-06 which has been around before i was born '84

Imo the 6.5 wby is a waste. Way to overbore. Should have went with 6.5 of 240wby thru 7mm wby (all based of 300 H&H). Have one and its a hammer. Then again the 264 wm is too amd very similar, sadly way ahead of its time. The 6.5-06 has been Around a long time as well and is a fantastic round and doesnt burn thru barrels.

It's the only 6.5 Weatherby offers. - I sure would like to see the 240 Weatherby necked up to 6.5, that would be an instant winner.

I think it's kind of weird that you can't get a Vanguard in any 6.5 like the Creedmoor, the 260 or even the 6.5x55, which Howa offers.

264 Win and the 6,5-284 are the only 6.5s I have any experience. I'd rather see them make a 270-300 or a 7mm-300. The 7mm would be sweet.

A 130 Nosler Partition moving in the 3650 to 3700 fps range would be interesting.
