I don't personally have a 6.5 WSM but have discussed the ballistics with people who do because it is comparable in velocity to my 6.5 Sherman. The difference is the Sherman has a .470" case head based off of the .270 case. Capacity is very close. You should be able to reach 3200' in the WSM, as will the Sherman, with a 140 gr. bullet. This is with a 26" barrel. I believe barrel life is better with the Sherman because of the design. As far as accuracy goes, I would expect there isn't much difference and is mostly dependant on the quality of the weapon, as is usually the case. The Sherman does have a little better neck which should give an accuracy advantage all things considered.......Rich
