I'm thinking about doing something similar from the custom shop. I handled a Backcountry and I didn't care for the straight stock, personally, it just didn't feel good to me.  So I was thinking about ordering a custom Weathermark LT in 6.5 RPM, action blueprinted and trued, and with custom colors. It would weight around 5.9 pounds which I could live with easily, have the stock design, I'm comfortable with, and won't have to be stored muzzle down. With them offering the Weathermark LT Limited with the spiral barrel fluting, I'm going to have to do some more inquiring if they will offer the spiral barrel fluting option in the custom shop. If will wait a few months easily, if they are going to, so I can get that option also.

you have some great elk down there BM,  8)  in this area, about the biggest bull you will find is about 330, most big bulls are in the 310-320 range. genetics not here for anything real big.  Season opened yesterday, and I haven't seen a hunter yet.

yea, the straight face trigger, might take a bit to get use to.  Now I'm wondering, if they will offer the spirial barrel flutes as an option though the custom shop??  I'm thinking about placeing an order though the custom shop, but I would have no problem waiting a few months if they are going to offer spirial barrel fluting as an option.  8)

Rifles / Re: Load for 378wby

I had a couple of very good loads using surplus powders, but that won't help you, as you being in sweden, you will have access to different powders than we have. Look on the norma website, they have pretty good reloading data for norma powder.

Ammo / Re: 6.5-300 ... so long 127gr. LRX load?
« on: September 15, 2020, 08:42:47 PM »
here is the reasoning on why I guessed the 143gr ELD-X
1) Weatherby has been using Hornady bullets for many years in their ammo
2) Weatherby has recently offered the ELD-X bullets in their 257, 300, and 30-378 ammo
3) 6.5-300 weatherby is the only caliber that they offer berger and swift bullets, all the other calibers have either norma(spitzer) Hornady, Nosler, or Barnes Bullets. So from a company point of view, it don't make sense sourcing bullets from berger and swift just for one caliber, when there is just as good of bullets available, from the bullets makers you get the bullets from, for all your other calibers. I could easily see them replacing the 140 gr berger load with the 143 gr ELD-X, and the 140 gr A-frame load with the 140 gr Accubond, and dumping the 130 gr load.

Then again, the 100gr TTSX would be a laser  8)

I guess we will have to wait and see.

We can't have all this cold artic air coming down, up here, so we though we better share it with you guys down south  ::) ;D  This should help some of your fire's to slow, which is good.

I would get the 6.5 RPM, itís an outstanding cartridge, I canít wait until they make the 280 RPM !

+1 the more results I hear from people about this caliber, the more I'm impressed about it.  WF65's load results with the 156 gr bullets was very impressive. Less then 100 fps slower than Godcountry's 6.5-300, 160gr load, using apprx 15 gr's less powder and 2 inches less barrel, very nice.

It would be nice to see them come up with a 7mm RPM, if they do, I f**king hope they don't name it 280 RPM

I really did like the 6.5-300 with the 127's though, I had last summer.

nice shooting Mike,  8)   I always been a big fan of any caliber in 6MM/243.  Now Adam, if you looking in, (hint, hint) how about 6mm RPM with the fast twisted barrels  ::)
