6.5-.300 Weatherby Wright Magnum headstamp


#1

Hello,
do anyone know who produced this (and where)? ‘J.Strydom’ is not in my files.
Are other headstamps known?


#2

Looks like a custom headstamp especially made for a shooter called “J Strydom”

Several custom ammunition makers offer this service ( Qual Cart or OPM for example)


#3

That seems to be so. The name ‘Strydom’ is apparently quite common in South Africa.

Are factory loads from ‘regular’ companies of this caliber known?


#4

Quality-Cartridge offers this round with their own head stamp. Bill


#5

O.P.M has made headstamps for J. Strydom.


#6

That cartridge should be called the 6.5-300 Barrel Burner. It’s about the most inefficient wildcat ever “designed” and I’m surprised anyone is making it into a factory cartridge. It should have been buried and forgotten long ago.

JMHO

Gents, thanks a lot for all your answers. Especially
cartridgecorner: for closing the south-african circle
ray: for the practical point of view

I have hints that this ammo was made in Denmark too.
But: Confusions, however, are possible.
My research goes on and I will be back with futher informations when the realities are examined.
