Re: ??? 6.5 STW???
Just got back to PA from Ohio and been on the road today.
The 6.5/300 Weatherby is a fine caliber and was the old standby (still is for many) longrange rifle in Pennsylvania. It also held a World record or two at the Wiliiamsport 1000 yard club.
It would be the maximum size case I would chamber the 6.5--140 to 155 gr bullet for.
It MUST have the 8 twist and a 30" barrel to really appreciate what it will do.
A friend of mine in Alaska had one chambered and the other day he shot a 114 LB wolf with it amd from what I understand, almost tore that wolf in half. He said he will have alot of sewing to do on the hide.
Anyway, the 6.5/300 Weatherby is a very good cartridge.
