Adds a little bump to the Creedmoor. Anyone play with this yet? flame


How fast, you might ask? Well, the company is introducing three cartridges, each with a muzzle velocity well north of 3,300 fps:

127-grain Barnes LRX — 3,531 fps
130-grain Swift Scirocco — 3,475 fps
140-grain Swift A-Frame — 3,395 fps

To give some perspective, the 127-grain round has a maximum point blank range (MPBR) of 0-305 yards on a 5-inch target with the rifle scoped in at 200 yards. And the bullet has more velocity at this particular MPBR than the .260 Remington produces at the muzzle.

Yes, I wasn't impressed at all. It's like cramming a big block with a large blower out the hood into a Ford Pinto. It's nothing but horse power, and hard to control. Not my cup of tea, but it is for some.

I'd rather get 3000 fps out of a 142gr bullet with barrel life and consistency. That's a little too hot for a 260 though, wish I went with a 6.5-284.

Not sure but it seems like that might kill on both ends ?

Doesn't appeal to me at all. Chad already explained.

I think that it's a neat super zapper. Not a target gun, obviously, but a cool hunting option if you like the .257 Wby or the 7mm Ultra.

6.5 Weatherby is a MUCH better option

^^ Exactly!!!

The 6.5 Wby, based on the 257 Wby case necked up would be an awesome round. The 6.5-300 Wby is a whole different case, and much larger. So, there's 2, 6.5,, Wby rounds.
