Youíll love that 240, by far and away my most widely used Weatherby cartridge. Hard hitting, flat shooting, and barely any recoil. Iíve taken some nice mule deer at pretty extended ranges and the results have been excellent. Not saying itís better then the 25-06 but definitely has the cool factor going and with the spitzer ammo a guy can find ammo pretty dang reasonable.

Nice shooting.
I do the exact same thing with those same targets, lol, place the same orange sticky ones in the center.
Like the targets, but would like a little smaller/tighter bullseye in the center.

My Accumark loves the factory 154 load. Only other factory load Iíve tried was the 150 BST and it did not like them at all, wouldnít mind trying one of the TTSX loads sometime here, but shoots the 154 so well, havenít been in much of a hurry to try others.
It is one of the better priced options also when it comes to Wby factory Ammo.

You may want to check out Fierce Firearms. Iíve handled a few and seem awful nice, come with 1/2Ē MOA guarantee even in some very light rifles. If I can ever save up enough without splurging on another Weatherby, itís the brand Iíd try.

This has to be the very same deer I shot last year. Shot him at 200 yards,bullet bounced off him and came back and busted my truck window.
Thatíll teach you for not using one of your Weatherbyís! ;)

I really think youíll love it! You and Roger had better both get one coming, promise you wonít be disappointed! If there were ever a ďperfectĒ Antelope medicine, 240 Wby has to be about as close as it gets ;)

Shoots like a laser with hardly any recoil/muzzle blast and hits game like a much much larger caliber!

Found a pic back in my phone of the Muley I mentioned earlier taken with the 240, this guy was 285yds and bullet passed completely through.

Anybody seen a whole pic of these beauties?
Have a hunch that is one sweet looking rifle and chambered in 6.5-300 to boot!

The 240 is by far and away my most used Wby cal and have taken several White tail, Mule Deer, Antelope, and a Black Bear with it.
Have many other calibers to choose from however I always find myself grabbing for the 240 more often then not. Mule Deer are exactly what Iíve used my 240 the most on and is an absolutely awesome caliber for such.
The biggest Mulie Iíve harvested dropped in his tracks at 285 yds out in South Dakota a few years ago with a 100gn Hornady Spire Point completely passing through both shoulders and doing some pretty extensive damage on its way through, wouldnít hesitate stretching the 240 on Mule Deer sized game out past 400yds if comfortable with shooting conditions, has plenty of power for it.
I have a VX-3 4.5-14 on mine and have been quite happy with the setup.
Donít hesitate, youíll love it.

+ Another for the 375 WBY in one of those nice Vanguards! Help boost the 375's popularity a bit more and give the guys that want one and affordable option! :)

The 340 would also be a nice addition to the Vanguard line up, I'd prefer sticking with the 26" tube though. 340 in a First Lite would be an affordable gem!!

The same group that owns Remington bought Barnes Bullets from the Brooks family around 2009-10 I think.
I believe Randy Brooks still has a big say in the things that go on there, hopefully he could get it back if things go South.

Awful similar to what Colt had going on for years, seems as though they are slowly getting themselves headed in the right direction, hopefully Remington can follow suit, havent had much interest in there products lately, would be a shame to see them completely disappear though.

Iíve shot both 378 and 416 Wby Magnums with Accubrakes and it is quite amazing at how pleasant they make a powerful cartridge such as them shoot.

Here are some charts.

It sure seems like a nice scope so far, especially for what I paid. Plus Vortex's headquarters are only a few hours from home so I've been pondering trying one out for quite awhile.

I think you will be happy with the Viper.Sounds like you got a good deal. Is the 204 your Pdog gun?
Yeah, that's the plan anyways, have never actually been Prairie Dog hunting yet, have been wanting for quite sometime just haven't gotten out there yet. Picked up a Remington 700 VLS a couple years back for that purpose and although I'm not a huge Remmy fan, I wanted a heavy barreled 26" and really liked the looks of the VLS so I thought I'd try it.
I hate to admit it, but the thing sure shoots and may be the most accurate I own.....at 100yds anyways.
I put a Nikon Monarch 4-16x40 on at the time and I've just never been real happy with it, so I've been wanting to try something else without spending a ton and seen the Cabelas ad.

I'd really like to get out in the near future and pluck away at some of them things, have a Browning 223 WSSM I'd like to bring with for a secondary, wouldn't take long to heat that one up though.
