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.

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 1/2Ē at 100yds.
I believe the synthetic stock Vanguard weighs 7.5lbs
I recently ordered some ammo that has 140gr Berger VLDís just to see how they group. I doubt I will get better groups than the Barnes 127ís.

I have been wanting some range reports on the 140 grain SPís. I like the price of those. Just hard to find anyone that has them.

First post, I went with a Mark V Arroyo. Added Warne mountain tech rail and medium rings. Mounted a Nikon Black x1000 4x16 illuminated reticle. It's my second markV rifle first in a weatherby caliber. Looking for a 500/600 yd deer rig. Want to see what the 130gr Bergers do through it.
