Ammo / Re: Bullet for 240 weatherby for deer

At 240 velocitys I don't think you have to worry about a TSX not expanding, if you are then try the 85 gr partition. Every bullet has some limitations, you could try a bonded bullet too. Lots of choices.

Chris I picked up the 2018 Hodgdon annual reloading manual today. It has load info for the new IMR 8133 powder and the Hornady 143 gr ELD-X bullet for the 6.5-300 Weatherby. Strange thing is they don't have a single load for my 340 Weatherby, but have almost a full page for the 33 Nosler. Hmmm!!!!

Good Luck Chris!!

Even though none of the help worked, thats what we're here for, to try to help each other out when there are problems.  ;D I know you say it jokingly, but really, I'll say this, theres no better forum than the Nation as a great group of friends.

 You are right I was joking. :)
 I also like this site as the members here are very helpful :) and it's just a pleasant place to visit.
Very few Trolls and it seems there are quite a few around the same age although that doesn't matter as young guys like Cody and old guys like Badsection are made to feel right at home. ;D ;D ;)

Your computer must still be messed up, you said Cody is young and Bad is Old!!!???

Welcome to the Nation, Gary!!! Weatherby is second to none in quality and customer service, so you won't get an argument from any of the regular members here.

It's amazing what the Weatherby name does to people, just wearing my Weatherby hat while in Cabelas I've had guys stop and ask me what I own and what's my favorite cartridge. In Colorado 2 old farts in their 80's stopped to talk, they see my hat and pull out there Deluxes in 300 to show me. And of course I showed them my ULW in 6.5-300, wish I'd of bought my Weatherby 30 years sooner.

Is the barrel free floating? If it's a light barrel and free floating try putting something in the first couple inches of the stock to see if the pressure settles it down when you shot it.

You've gotten a bunch of great advice here, clean the heck out of it with BTE like Dubyam suggested. Play with some hand loads, especially seating depth if you already have some preferred loads.
If you got the hankering to spend money on a new barrel stick with the Bee, if not just buy a Nosler.

Maybe they sense an approaching weather system? Must be fun seeing them that close!
