Based on a quick search yesterday, The 6.5Wby RPM is basically on par with the 6.5PRC as performace and it doesn't resemble the standard weatherby design. 6.5-300wby takes on the classic shape of the weatherby round and is a crazy fast shooter.What is the difference between the 6.5 Wby RPM and the 6.5-300 Wby Mag? People keep buying 6.5s so more and more manufacturers are coming out with variants in the 6.5 family like Hornady did with the 6.5 PRC and some other examples.
The 6.5RPM is basically a longer case length built off the 284win. Built to work on a standard .473 bolt face and in the 6 lug mark V action length. It should be a fun cartridge.What is the difference between the 6.5 Wby RPM and the 6.5-300 Wby Mag?

Sooo, it boasts Remington like specs with twice the price because it is a Weatherby cartridge… Yeah, I’ll pass… And V-E-R-Y FEW places even carry Weatherby ammunition. The finding the ammo aggravation and the ridiculous pricing of their ammo takes the Weatherby’s out of 99% of hunters/shooters cabinets.They are just NOT worth it for possibly a couple hundred FPS, usually less. Weatherby’s are great for the scarfed, pinky up on the champagne glass, through the nostril “I own a Weatherby” crowd or maybe someone actually hunting Africa, but for the normal, everyday Joe hunter…. A resounding NO..
$2,499.00 for the cheaper one.
$3,349.00 for the “expensive” one"
I consider myself an ordinary type guy who often drinks wine and champagne from a paper cup if nothing else is available, bourbon too. I have four Weatherby Mark Vs and a Vanguard VGX. If you haven't noticed, a scarf works well keeping Montana's gentle zephers from freezing hunters necks during fall and winter hunts and general outdoor work. You DO work outside don't you? GJ
