Built using the popular 6.5 Weatherby RPM as its parent case, the new .338 WBY. RPM. RPM combines the traditional, fire-breathing power of Weatherby components with modern ballistic technologies. The new magnum cartridge sends a heavy-for-caliber bullet at more than 2,800 fps for maximum terminal performance on big and dangerous game.
Weatherby is known for ballistic superiority, touting many of the fastest cartridges available by caliber, as well as the strongest rifle action available with the Mark V Magnum 9-lug action. Like the 6.5 WBY. RPM, the new .338 RPM has been purpose built to fire out of the smaller, lighter Mark V 6-lug action. The Rebated Precision Magnum family is unique compared to Weatherby’s traditional cartridges because it is a non-belted, non-venturi shoulder case with a rebated rim. Out of the gate Weatherby will be shipping four offerings in .338 WBY RPM that are in stock now and loaded with either 185- and 225-grain options with projectiles from Barnes, Hornady and Nosler.
