    I have found that it takes a little more tinkering, especially seating depth, loading for Wby rifles. Took me quite a bit longer to find a good shooting load for my .257 & .300. The Wby rifles have a lot of freebore. Once I got the mix right, they are great shooters.
    Do you have a pet .340wby load you'd like to share? also if there's a certain OAL?
    Thanks.

    While I'm not CC I do have a pet load for the .340.

    88 grains of RL22
    Barnes 225 TTSX
    Fed 215
    OAL of 3.7"
    Norma case

    This clocks out of my .340 at 3000 fps and will shoot sub moa at 200 yards. The Barnes #3 manual shows this to be a max load but I have not seen any pressure signs with it. I've hunter with this load from Colorado high country to the low lands of South Africa. I haven't played around with the bullet seating since I am satisfied with what I have.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    Weatherby is moving to the great country of Wyoming.
