Wonder why they would test those loads from a 24" barrel? I'm pretty sure there is no factory offering for the 6.5-300 in anything but a 26" barrel.

Their max loads are more like starting loads. I am easily getting 3400fps with 140g and US869. So 2in. less barrel would still be 3350fps.

   No surprise to me. Most reloading data for weatherby cartridges is quite conservative. ctw
