Title: 240 ammo by HSM?
Post by: GMT Hunter on June 02, 2018, 10:00:33 PM
Just saw some Hunting Shack Ammunition Co. 240 ammo with 75 gr. V max's. Never knew they offered these anyone out there tried them? can't find out what vel. level there at? I always stick to weatherby factory loads but thinking of trying some as they might be a little better for woodchucks. Anybody tried these or have any information it'd be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Nation GMT. If you go to the HSM website, go to the ammunition heading and choose by caliber not rifle. Scroll down and you'll find the 75 gr. V-Max vel. listed at 3419. I saw them for $64.00. If you end up ordering them, maybe you can post a range report next week, good or bad. Should be interesting. Good Luck

Thank you for the welcome and the info. I ordered a box should get them whithin a week and hopefully can get a chance to try them. I've still got about 300 acres of 1st cut to get in so might be a little while but I 'll post a range report. Great to find a place with fellow weatherby fans.
