Product Information

6.5 WBY RPM (Rebated Precision Magnum) 140gr Nosler Accubond Ammunition

Weatherby has traditionally designed and built ultra-high velocity cartridges with unique case designs-belted magnums with a double-radius shoulder. This is seen in all of the existing Weatherby cartridges until now. The Mark V 6 lug standard action has been one of our best-kept secrets for years. The goal of the 6.5 WBY RPM (Rebated Precision Magnum) was initially based around maximizing the potential of this great lightweight action. Setting out to produce the best backcountry rifle and cartridge combination ever, it was a project not taken lightly. At our core, Weatherby prides itself in ballistic superiority. The rebated rim helps achieve the desired velocity and energy we were looking for while remaining compatable with our 6 lug action. The 6.5 WBY RPM packs a punch and is capable of being chambered in Weatherby’s new sub five pound rifle, the Mark V Backcountry Ti. This combination offers maximum downrange performance in the lightest rifle possible. After years of development, the 6.5 WBY RPM combination achieves the weight savings, ballistic performance and price that cannot be found in a rifle anywhere else.

The 6.5 WBY RPM is based on a lengthened version of the existing 284 Winchester. This cartridge has a rebated rim, making it compatible with standard 30-06 bolt faces and reloading equipment. However, the large body diameter, low body taper, and 35-degree shoulder mean that case capacity is greatly increased, leading to higher velocities. In addition, bullet innovation in the 6.5mm category are highly efficient with less drop and wind deflection than many heavier calibers. All these details culminate into a cartridge that delivers 1,500 foot pounds of energy at 500 yards capable of ethically taking big game animals across the globe.

This is loaded ammunition.

Another Winner from Weatherby

By Kelly H. on Oct 09, 2020
The 6.5 RPM is the newest Weatherby cartridge. It is the most powerful 6.5 except for the awesome 6.5-300 Weatherby and 26 Nosler. This load is extremely flat shooting but with much less blast and recoil than the 6.5-300. In my opinion, this is the best load for the RPM. The accubond bullet expands wickedly but continues to penetrate. Based on my experience, you can expect a significant blood trail if the animal doesn’t just drop at the shot. You won’t be disappointed with this Weatherby ammunition; it looks good and performs even better. This particular load has shown me that I am the weak link in accurate shooting.
