6.5/300wsm

does anyone have any load data on this cartridge. better yet does anyone have a definite opinion of it? it seems to be the best of the short actions which I like to shoot.

Re: 6.5/300wsm

I am pretty sure that on the GoGoVarmintGo board one of the advertisers, Richards Custom Rifles built a very early one in that. Do not have his no but it is on that board.

Re: 6.5/300wsm

I'm not sure if Winchester is making a 264W_SS_M but that'd be pretty nice. I'd say the case being larger, anything on the high end of the 6.5-284 would be a place to start.

Re: 6.5/300wsm

My dad just got his barrel in for his yesterday and is waiting on the reamer still. He loaded up some 140 SMK's using 270 WSM load data and to throat it for. He has my Nosler #5 manual still, but I can get the load and OAL he used for you to compare if you like. He's using a 700 LA and has them seated out pretty far so you'd want to consider that part with his load choice too.

Re: 6.5/300wsm

Thanks Brent, would appreciate any help on this. I am not a beginning shooter, but I am definitely new when it comes to wildcat loads. These are the recommendations I have had so far. Now I see someone with a 6.5/416
6.5/308 Being unable to find any ballistics
6.5/284 on these I really do not know which
6.5/06 to go. I am looking for a rifle I can
6.5/270 hunt with and shoot targets at proba
6.5/300 bly at 500 yards.max.

6.5/416
far overbore , impressive look but very inefficient cartridge same as 6.5/378
6.5/308 Being unable to find any ballistics
6.5/08 is same as 260 Rem
6.5/284 on these I really do not know which
6.5/284 have powder capacity of the 6.5/06
balistic is close .
6.5/06 to go. I am looking for a rifle I can
6.5/270 hunt with and shoot targets at proba
6.5/270 is a 6.5/06 with just longer neck .
6.5/300 bly at 500 yards.max.
6.5/300 wea is a very good max capacity cartridge
you get 264 Win too , no big forming , dies available , very good balistic with 140 gr ..........
a 6.5/280 Rem is good to as the 264 Williams

good shooting

Re: 6.5/300wsm

Moly coated 139 Lapua touching lands, 65.5 gr. H1000, Fed 210 M. Velocity is 3150 with no pressure out of a 30" barrel. Work up to this in your rifle. Retumbo looks to be promising, I can't wait till it warms up.
