I have a custom rifle in 6.5mm WSM. It makes a great long-range cartridge. I mainly use a 123 grain Lapua Scenar which I keep down to 3300 fps, but I have seen data for 140 grain bullets reaching or surpassing 3300 fps. Hodgdon RETUMBO is the go-to powder, and Federal 210 primers. 27.5" and 26" are very effective barrel lengths for this cartridge.

There are already a few other threads on this cartridge. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to view similar threads.

Unfortunately, I haven't spent a lot of time on load development in this rifle, so I can only speak first hand about one load. 123 grain Lapua Scenar, Federal 210 primer, I have used as much as 71.5 grains of Hodgdon RETUMBO, resulting in 3350 fps with safe pressure signs.

Send a PM to MZ5, He has one. As I remember he told me that Hodgdon told him to use the 264 Win Mag starting load data, as the case H2O capacity is the same.
