Weatherby Select Plus 6.5 Weatherby RPM (Rebated Precision Magnum) 127 gr Barnes LRX Lead Free 20 Rounds B65RPM127LRX
Ultra-high velocity, magnum ammunition is how Roy Weatherby got started in the 1940s. As a young wildcatter, he revolutionized the industry with his fast, hard-hitting loads that were dead-on accurate. Today, those same performance qualities are every bit a part of Weatherby cartridges.
The 6.5 WBY RPM is based on a lengthened version of the existing 284 Winchester. This cartridge has a rebated rim, making it compatible with standard 30-06 bolt faces and reloading equipment. However, the large body diameter, low body taper, and 35-degree shoulder mean that case capacity is greatly increased, leading to higher velocities. In addition, bullet innovation in the 6.5mm category is highly efficient with less drop and wind deflection than many heavier calibers. All these details culminate into a cartridge that delivers 1,500 foot-pounds of energy at 500 yards capable of ethically taking big game animals across the globe.
Weatherby’s move to Wyoming is an exciting step towards the continual opportunity for innovation. The cartridges that paved the way for advancement in ballistics and load development will forever be a solid foundation. Weatherby’s intention is a constant progression for ballistic superiority, confidence in developing new and impressive cartridges that perform and meet expectations attached to the Weatherby brand. NOTHING SHOOTS FLATTER. HITS HARDER. OR IS MORE ACCURATE.™
