wish they chambered it in .280 Ackley Improved

they also used natural dyes, vs all this UV dyes we have today.

and it's come full circle with wool once again being praised.

sure there are some advances, but I don't think we've come that far with that much...

I will not own another short action cartridge built on a long action. I assume this is the case for this setup.

sure if they were created today they would all be based on the 300wby case...

weatherby did release the 6.5-300wby

plus now there are other big options, so I don't see the advantage of wby releasing similar magnums.

a 340wby with light bullets can smoke many of these smaller cals shooting bigger/same size bullets, and do it with less barrel length. of course the BC's will be lower with the 340, but are you really planning to shoot past 600yards? most of us I doubt are.

the 7mm-300wby makes sense, but there are so many 7mm mags out there, 7mm.rem, 28 Nosler, 7mm stw, 7mm RUM,

not much, and even less with the 340wby or 375wby.

also with heavier bullets, the drop in speed is less.

so a 300wby shooting 200grs will lose less fps than a 165gr bullet.

i think in a 300wby I'd probably want a 26" barrel, but 24 wouldn't be a big deal.

in a 340wby I'd want 24" and not 26", one day I'll cut my down to 24 or build a custom etc... or rebarrel.

perhaps arrow too long to accurately read? ie., a 2 foot arrow vs. a 1inch bullet.

the ar15 does make a great coyote rifle.

I have my doubts they could ever ban the ar15 or all semi-auto rifles altogether? if you ban semi auto rifles then do you ban semi-auto handguns? revolvers?

I think magazine capacity limits might be able to get passed.

easily to 500-600 yards.

I've made the argument it's a better round than the .257wby.

If you're looking to kill past 500yds I'd choose a higher BC type bullet 100gr etc...

up to that I'd probably want the 80/85gr TSX style.

I wouldn't hesitate to use my .243win with 85gr TSX on antelope to 500yds.

240wby is a cool round, just not that popular overall.

would be an awesome round for a youngster as well, adults too!

257wby w/ 100gr TSX

the 257 is much more popular than the 270wby or 7mm WBY

even if semi autos were banned until 25yo, our gov't needs 18yr olds in the military.

it would be ironic however to be 18 using a full auto get out and can't buy an ar15.

we already have double standards though, a 14yo commits murder, and they're tried as an adult.
but a 14yo hooks up with a 16yo boyf and he took advantage of a child who couldn't consent.

the point is moot, since they're not bringing it back.

and they already have to 240wby.

most of the 06 based models used a #1 fluted.

I'm not certain on the 338-06,

the magnum models had a #2 fluted I believe

He already has a .240, 270, 300wby,
I see no advantage to adding the 6.5-300wby to that mix.

I don't know the exact numbers but a 340wby shooting 180grs, would be smoking fast, also able to be loaded heavy, up to 275/300grs.

that 6.5 needs a 26-28" barrel as well, the 340 only needs 24"

get a 340wby or 375wby/H&H

OK. What does that have to do with a 6.5-300?

22-250 Weatherby Mag  ;)  ie. (22-250AI)

no reason to IMO but if they did,

they should go a new route and standardize the .22-250 AI

Cool round, however it wouldn’t scratch my itch and get me to stop complaining if it didn’t end with “Weatherby Magnum”!
I love my 204 and 223 WSSM, just don’t get that same sensation out and about when I’m not carrying a Wby round and really don’t like dragging my 224 through the paces.
