First picture is 225 grain TTSX and 4831
Second picture is 230 grain ELD-X and RL-25. Still can do a little adjusting with this one

Looks like that 225gr TTSX will be a great choice in your rifle. I couldn't get that projectile to shoot as accurate as the standard 225gr TSX in my .340 for some reason. Anyhow you will find that projectile will be good for everything from mice to moose and is a great balance between flat trajectory, hitting energy and penetration. Good luck with it.

I am glad the 225 TTSX shoots good with this gun. I had a load for it in the 338 win mag before l got this rifle. I used it to take the elk l had as my avatar for awhile.

Thanks Rob, 225TTSX will be the go to load for hunting, l have had good  success with that bullet.
The ELD-X load is for shooting long range steel.
The 185 TTSX, l have had good success on pronghorn and deer

Thanks for posting on your .340WBY, there isn't much info out there on this awesome caliber!

I've had mine a few months and have been feverishly developing loads for it....

So far, it seems my older Japanese Mark V likes the 210gr TTSX and 225gr SST projectiles. H4831SC for the 210gr and RL-25 for the 225gr and up. Been trying to get the 250gr accubond to behave but haven't hit a good spot with it yet.

As an aside, the TTSX, in my rifle, likes to be seated very deep in the case.

Hope it helped, the 225 grain load l got from BB340.
Mine so far likes the bullets seated as far out as l can get them and still feed though the magazine
