Welcome to the Nation Butch!  Those of us who own the 6.5-300 bee, have them in the Mark V.  I personally own an Accumark, and what has been the factory ammo that most of these rifles like is the 127 LRX.  However, your rifle will be the deciding factor on which ammo shoots better.  In regards to the lightest Vanguard rifle made, it is the Vanguard Synthetic.  Let us know what you end up buying.

Check out the Vanguard Wilderness as well, I bought one not too long ago, I really like the feel and look of that rifle.

I used the 127 grain LrX on all three deer I killed.

I have the markV ultra lightweight at 6.75 lbs.
I use 127gr LRX and I have 3 shot groups of 1/2” at 100yds.
I believe the synthetic stock Vanguard weighs 7.5lbs
I recently ordered some ammo that has 140gr Berger VLD’s just to see how they group. I doubt I will get better groups than the Barnes 127’s.
