Thanks Kevin. I will check it out.  I'm over due for there new manual.

Thanks Mike.  I will try and find some of those.
Always wanted to try them.

Thank you BB
That is right there with the data on my target.
87.5 grs. It shot right at 1" with 250 gr. Sierra GameKings.
And I did find my load it was in the Sierra book
Which is to big for my book rack so it's off to the side. I forgot I even had it.
Thanks again for the loads.  I saved them with A screen shot.

Does anyone Have A good load using RL 25
For A 250 gr. Bullet in the 340 Wby.
I have one from A guy on the Weatherby group on FB
But there is nothing from Alliant they don't even list it for the 340 Wby.
Thank you

Lots of good advise. I have followed it all except I haven't ordered the tapered expander plug yet.
But I would add not to use the neck sizer die. I crunched all 3 with the neck sizer and the 3 I resized with the full length die worked perfect.  And I used the same regular expander plug.

It just came to me. About A year ago I sized 1 375 h & h down to 338 and one 300 h & h up to 338. And I didn't crunch the case.  So I tried again but this time I used A FL die. And it worked perfectly. The guy on the web who said to use the neck die was in this case wrong.
I will still buy the tapered 338 Expander. Ball and arbor As I will convert several for practice loads and save my 340 cases for hunting. I have heard your head stamp better match your Rifle when traveling to Africa.

Pretty Impresive Buff.
I swear you should have your own TV show !!

I found A old post and it was mentioned to get a tapered expanding ball.
I will have to get one. Because even with imperial sizing wax I forced the shoulder right inside the case.

I have never resized A case to A Larger Caliber.
On line they say there is nothing to it. Just use your neck sized die then trim it.
I tried to do just that.  I lubed the neck but dang. That must shut take A lot of force. I am worried something is going to break.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
Is there A trick?
Thank you.

I believe so Zonie it had model 70 checkering.
But it was A Monte Carlo Stock.
And had A  K Mart gloss Scope. Lol I think there were A few years of the 300 win mag also. They did a good job of blocking out the old caliber and re stamping it 300 Weatherby. I should have taken A pic.

I went to the Gun Barn today. The Owner there has some real classics on display. And there all for sale. But there all way over priced.
There A Masonic Colt 1911 on A glass case for $25 grand. And it's Ugly.  Lol
But in the used gun rack there was A pre 64 Model 70 rechambered in 300 Wby. It looks nicely done. But for only $599.99 I fear it must be shot out. But I was told just the action on A pre 64 is worth that price.
Just thought I would share if anyone was interested.
Otisville Gun Barn.
They usaly post online.

Very Nice Mike. I have been trying every couple years here in northern MI

I hope to try both this winter.
Keep up the good work.
