I wish I was taking my 6.5/300 this year but we messed around, waited too long and didn't get rifle tags in time. We're bow hunting in September instead. I'm sure to use the Weatherby next year as we already decided to get our Idaho tags very early next year, actually we can get next years tags starting this December 1st (nonresidents only). We're not going to wait for other guys to make up their minds about going, we're getting our tags early, if they want to procrastinate that's up to them. 8)

I noticed a recent post where a new member was surprised Weatherby got into the 6.5 market. This post reviels a lot and while I was re-reading it I noticed a few members that were involved that are no longer with us. Makes you feel happy and sad at the same time.

Very true.  Godscountry posed the idea and we fought for and argued back and forth for just under two and a half years before Weatherby came out with it.  I know those of us who fought so hard for them to make it were super happy and proud to have some part in it happening even if it was merely talking about it in this post.  We had some heated moments during the discussion but our hopes and thoughts are a reality thanks to Weatherby. 
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

I've got a question for all of you 6.5-300 Ultra Light Weight owners. Mine has the etching on the barrel that's not blackened. I've seen two other ULW 6.5-300 rifles that has the etching blackened. How many of you have black etching and how many have stainless etching and I wonder why the difference?  Here's a pic.

Some barrels had the print done before the barrel was blackened.Some after.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

Mines all Black, I ordered it a few weeks after the 6.5-300 was announced.
