Don’t run my undies up the flag pole here, but….

Has anyone used a 350 legend for antelope?

As a flat lander from MI, my wife and I will be out in October on a type 2 tag. At 4’11” tall, she has been shooting our much more compact 350 legend (160grain) better than my full size .243 which I plan on using.

If she can shoot it accurately it will be fine, you just might need to work a bit to get within the effective range of that cartridge.

Anyone here have experience with the 130gr 6.5 Swift Siccaro on antelope? Specifically from a 6.5-300 WBY
Yep loaded in my 6.5x284 shot a little over 400yds in 19' hit a little further back due to my wind call but dropped him in his tracks, they are pretty efficient bullets and the BC is .571 G1. Last year shot my goat with my 284 Win custom Kimber rig with Barnes 120 TTSX straight heart shot and goat ran around 100 yds. I have had good luck with the 130 gr. Scirroco's even on Elk under 300 yds out of a 260 REM. Great bullet can't say enough good things about it

I'd take the 6.5 and not think twice. I love my 300, but for an all around for the species you mentioned I think that would be an awesome caliber. My first gun was a .260, and it was responsible for a handful of elk kills.
I got a new 6.5 savage this year and I am going to try Barnes 130 gr

I'm shooting .270 145gr Hornady ELD-X for CO antelope in early October. From what I've read I think it's a toss up whether the bullet will grenade or mushroom, but I plan on a lung shot.

I'll follow up and give a report.
