Gear 101 | September 11, 2018

When deciding on a caliber to hunt with, it’s always important to pay attention to details. The ever popular 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge is a proven round for all types of big game and is extremely accurate shooting at distances. Weatherby® builds models in both the growing 6.5 Creedmoor and gives further advantage with the fastest 6.5mm bullet available. The 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum is the fastest production 6.5mm available. Combined with high Ballistic Coefficient (BC) projectiles designed for long range shooting, the velocity of the 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum opens a whole new world of possibilities and provides hunters with the terminal performance every Weatherby® shooter is accustomed to. If you are making a decision on purchasing a 6.5 Creedmoor pay attention to the muzzle velocity and increased downrange energy differences the superior 6.5-300 WBY provides compared to the sufficient 6.5 Creedmoor.

Both the 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum are available in multiple Weatherby® rifles. Nothing shoots flatter, hits harder or is more accurate.
