I bought one in 2020, Weathermark LT. Love the rifle, and the cartridge. Matches the 264 WM without the belt. Currently shooting 140 TGK at 3100 fps with H1000. Brass is generally available new, and occasionally as once fired direct from Weatherby.
I just picked up my Backcountry Ti in 6.5 RPM yesterday so can't give any input on how it shoots. I wanted a mid-caliber rifle and have never owned a Weatherby. So, since they are now made in Wyoming I thought I'd support a 'local' business. Ammo isn't really much more expensive that the others. I've found some $55 to $60 per box.
That’s awesome. I’m new to this site. A buddy of mine recommended to it. Said it’s great info for anything and everything hunting. I’m looking to sell my Christensen Arms 28 nosler as well but i did read that you have to post so many times I guess? Is that correct?
Took a whitetail deer with it using Hammer bullets. Handloads were pretty accurate. Factory 127 LRX was MOA-ish. Factory Hornady soft points had terrible accuracy. Never could find factory Accubonds to try.
I sold it off as not being significantly superior to 6.5 PRC which, at the time, had much better availability of factory ammo and less costly to hand load. Also have a Wby Backcountry 2.0 in 280AI that I liked better than the RPM.
If my birthday gift to myself ever comes in, I may sell that 280AI as well.
