I just bought one in 340 off of gunbroker. It shipped today. I am wondering if the barrel is cut for a brake and if a brake will come with it. Weatherby's website seemed to say it was cut, #2 1/2x28 thread but doesn't say anything about coming with a brake. Thanks!

Yea, not. It took an long chain of emails to verify the damn gun was a Wyoming gun, and not old stock.

The break does not come standard on the Weathermarks in 340, only the 30-378 and 338-378 have them as a standard feature.

Shoot her without a brake. I find the .340 is not really a hard kicker.

I agree, recoil is brisk but not unbearable in a 340. Mine is not braked.
I shoot cases with a belt because I feel the other cartridges need to pull their trousers up.

I am not asking about the recoil. I am asking about the way the Wyoming made Guns come from factory. Rob answered the brake question, now does anyone know if it comes threaded for a brake?
I hunted with a 340 fibermark for years, I know what itís like. I am almost 60 now and would like a brake if itís threaded for one. Thanks everyone.
