It's supposed to be .020 longer than the 270
Thanks Mark. That is useful info but I still wonder if the brass ACTUALLY is 2.56" in length? If you look at the spec for WW or REM .270 brass it will say 2.540" but when you measure the brass itself it will likely be closer to 2.530". RWS is spendy brass and I don't want to buy a bunch and have it end up no longer than the .270 case. I recently bought some Nosler in .280 A.I. thinking I was going to get some longer brass because it was formed closer to my case and would have less shrinkage. That part was true but it only measured 2.522" to begin with..........Rich

Re: 6.5x65 RWS BRASS

I hear ya Rich, I don't think I've ever gotten brass that was as long as it's spec'd to be. But maybe the RWS is as long or longer than the 270 brass is supposed to be? Hope you get an answer.

Ya, that's what I'm thinking too. If it runs true to form, it should be .016" longer......Rich

Re: 6.5x65 RWS BRASS

I finally bought some from Natchez but I think it's GOLD not brass. The good news was it measured 2.552" and very consistent lengths. I have my 300in being rechambered and am anxious to try some out.........Rich

Do you want 6.5x65 or 6.5x65R? Huntingtons at huntington.com has 6.5x65 but not the rimmed version. If you want the rimmed version contact me at chavenord@shaw.ca.
