You don't know Fluffy!300WBY said:I should also take into consideration that with a name like "Fluffy The Cat" you aren't man enough to handle the recoil of the .300.

I might be new to this forum but iam certinaly not new to firearms!
The question is which is better a 6.5 or 7mm-300 Wby. I have both 300 and 7mm, as well as, 270 Wbys. While I love to shoot my big caliber, I have recently switched to custom 264 rifles. First off, the 7mm-300 is a 7mm STW minus the rounded shoulders. Both the 6.5 and 7mm bullets have very good long range ballistics. You will have to reload for all of your shooting, as I have never seen this available loaded. Now out of all of the calibers, Roy failed to make the 6.5 for some reason. His 257 often has the claim of the best round, as well as his favorite. I believe that if he had made the 6.5, it would be the favorite. Now the 257, 270, & the 7mm calibers have a slightly shorter case, than the 300. My 264 Win calibers shoot with 3300fps and is available at almost all hunting stores, if I need a load, or want more brass. There is a slight gain in velocity in the longer 300 case, however, it isn't worth the recoil, or shortened life of the barrel and brass. The Westener (.264) is one of the best calibers ever, and if Roy had it available, I would buy it!!My father just had a 6.5x 284 custom built and iam looking to one up him i was wondering if anyone could give me information and ballistics on either the 6.5x 300 Weatherby or the 7mm- 300 Weatherby. Any Info would be greatful
