6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum 130 grain Barnes TSX (Triple Shock)- The 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum is a 6.5mm cartridge created by Weatherby in 2016 as its own rendition to the ever-growing 6.5mm long range rifle market. Named the 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum, the new hot-rod round is simply the .300 Weatherby Magnum necked down to 6.5mm (0.264 inch). As the newest in Weatherby’s lineup this cartridge is designed to be in direct competition to the 26 Nosler and Claimed by Weatherby to be the fastest 6.5mm cartridge available. Designed in a similar fashion as other Weatherby cartridges it has a large for caliber case capacity resulting in high velocities. When bullets with high ballistic coefficients are used trajectories are extremely flat, allowing the projectile to retain a significant amount of energy downrange. These attributes make the 6.5-300 quite effective for long range hunting on medium-sized game.

Barnes’ most popular hunting bullet, the TSX™ Triple Shock® X-Bullet utilizes all-copper construction and innovative design to give you one of the deadliest, most dependable bullets you can buy. More than 20 years of copper bullet experience go into the TSX, delivering a bullet that gives you lower fouling, better accuracy, greater velocity and lower pressure. The TSX’s all copper construction delivers a lighter bullet than comparable lead core bullets, delivering higher velocities, flatter trajectories, and less recoil. This construction also delivers nearly 100% weight retention and produces surer, deeper penetration with its specially engineered nose cavity that peels back into four sharp-edged petals that cut through game. This specially designed nose cavity expands to double the bullet’s diameter almost immediately after impact at both high and low velocities, giving you a bullet that is as deadly on longer shots as it is at point blank range. The Triple-Shock X also features multiple precisely engineered rings cut into the bullet shank that serve as relief valves as the bullet travels down the bore. These rings give the bullet’s copper material a place to expand into under pressure, resulting in reduced pressures, less copper fouling, and better barrel harmonics for improved accuracy. Recommended by big game guides around the world. Made in USA.
