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

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.
