    I have a 300 WSM, and when I shoot the barrel out of it I am thinking of building a 6.5 WSM. After shooting the 260 Rem. and seeing it drifts less in the wind with a 140 Berger at 2660 fps than a 175 MK at 2960 fps.I am seriously thinking of going to a 6.5 WSM. A 140 Berger or a 142 would be impressive at 3200 fps. Does anyone have any experience with it? I would appreciate any information or experience with this cartridge be it good or bad.

    Sorry gentlemen, if I would have looked just a little further, I would have seen the 6.5 WSM topic a little further down. Gotta look past the end of my nose!
