NRA Gun Gear of the Week: 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum Ammunition
Roy Weatherby built the company that bears his name on the premise that speed trumps weight when it comes to harvesting game quickly and humanely. Weatherby Magnum cartridges have invariably started as wildcat loads designed to outpace the competition in the most popular hunting calibers. The 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum is no different, a .300 Wby. Mag. case necked down for a 0.264” bullet, it enters the field as the world’s fastest 6.5 mm production load.
John Moses Browning invented yet another in the long list of firearms to his credit in 1914. This one was a semi-automatic rimfire pistol design that lives on to this day in the Browning Buck Mark.
