Re: Hey all
Wecome aboard 6.5
Now your talking. A died in the wool 6.5/300 Weatherby shooter.
Have been using that one for many years too, along with others.
I have a bunch of the 139 gr bullets left but mainly shoot the 142 Sierra MK with 85 to 87 grs of WC872 (like H870) in my 30" Hart barreled (8 Twist a must), Sako actioned, laminated heavy stock, LR rifle.
I have found over the years there are better cartridges but the 6.5/300 is a dandy.
We had a Bowling ball hanging on a chain at 1450 yards at a shoot out we have every year.
I hit that ball with my 6.5 and the 142 gr Sierra MK and it blew a chunk out of that ball bigger then the size of a grapefruit and it was thrown in the air about 15 feet.
A great LR rifle and 3350 FPS is about the velocity they all seem to get with the powder and bullets mentioned.
Good hunting to you [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
By the way----who's your Dad? I may know him.
