.340 WBY load data needed

.340 WBY load data needed
« on: January 30, 2018, 09:14:50 AM »
hello - I'm new to the forum. Am a fan of WBY chambered rifles......have a .257 WBY, .270 WBY, an a .340 WBY all custom built guns!
So the .340 was built to shoot Factory made Weatherby ammo - 210 Nosler Partitions. This particular ammo was discontinued by WBY. It shot that factory load at .350" at 100 yards.

I have decided to start reloading for this rifle and want to know if anybody has that particular recipe. I also want load data for a good long range target/hunting round.....out to 1,000 yards.

Thanks in advance.

To say I love the 340 would be an understatement! If it was legal Down Under to marry my rifle I would lol.
She gets fed on a strict diet of 86 grains of AR2213sc (H4831) or 86 grains of RE19 behind the 225 grain TSX projectile.
That food keeps her trim and fast with plenty of knock down power way out yonder.

My rifle likes IMR-4831, 83 grains, and 225 TTSX bullets, federal mag 215 primers
It is a modified BB340 load 😎
