Weatherby Inc: Is the 6.5mm Creedmoor coming back?

(31 posts)

To anyone at Weatherby Inc who can speak on this matter:  Is the 6.5mm Creedmoor coming back to the S2 Vanguard line?  I think it would be a good thing under the Christmas tree.

This is great news about the 300yd accuracy. That doesn't "happen" without good techniques and an equally good rifle. Let's hope the powers that be at Weatherby keep the 6.5 Creedmoor in production.

The latest news says another loon attacked 4 NYC cops with a hatchet. One cop is in critical condition. The loon was not a survivor . Suicide by cop? A bystander was wounded.

Calling all 7mm Wby shooters...a little help with my bucket list if you please.  I'm thinking about retiring next June. Like many hunters I wanted to mark the occasion by getting a rifle.  I thought I had shot every caliber from 17-458 but looking through my reloading records I see no entry for the weatherby version.  Good calib...

Great cartridge and one of my favorites. I own a first year production USA made Mark V Stainless. Here in Pennsylvania I made my longest shot on a whitetail with it (419 yards). I used a handloaded Nosler 150gr Bal-Tip. I also load the Barnes 160gr.TSX. Both are very accurate combos. I doubt you will regret investing in Roy's 7MM Magnum. ...

Lost my safety

(7 posts)

As many of you know I bought an original Vanguard Back Country. I love the gun 300B. Except for that creepy trigger which had about 3 false pulles before the pull that released the pin. I finally tore it down and adjusted the trigger on it. Thought I'd try this before buying Timmney which will not match the stainless as nicely. End result of a...

Guess I`m lucky. All 4 of the S1's I've had have great triggers. The single worst trigger I own is a Model 70 7mm WSM. The rifle is one of my most accurate so I hesitate on fixing what ain't broke.    Good luck, Mike!

.340 Weatherby

(20 posts)

Most of the published information on ammo for the .340 Weatherby goes to .250 grain bullets. However, I see references to Nosler Accubond ammo in 300 grain. Does anyone have any information on that. If so, please share.

Also, has anyone ever compared the .340 Weatherby using 300 grain Accubonds with the .375 H&H using 300 grain Accu...

I would consider loading this 300gr. Accubond for my 338 RUM, but I can`t find the bullet. The 338 RUM is a basic twin of the 340  in ballistics without the belt.

New Mark V

Since I can't post any photos, I'll just have to tell you guys that I took delivery of a Mark V Terramark RC in .270 Win mag, with a muzzle brake. (Muzzle brake on a .270 Win mag? Yes, I had an accident a year and a half ago and messed up my right shoulder big time.) It is drop dead gorgeous, and I expected it to shot well, but... I took ...
