While on the phone today ordering 5 boxes of 240 Wby 80 gr TTSX ammo I mentioned to a Weatherby customer service rep named Teresa about your problems and she promised me that she would pass along the info.  Hopefully you will hear from them shortly.


Cheers for that mate.  :)

Teresa is great at Weatherby,  she got the message she will get you in the right direction.

Well done Dinno!  Hopefully this will get the attention it deserves.  Keep us posted BB. Good luck brother.

BB, I agree that Weatherby will get this corrected. Here's an idea for you: plan a hunt in Wyoming (there is some great hunting there) and bring an extra airline/TSA approved rifle case. Before your hunt (or after) visit Weatherby, pick up your rifle in person (with a thorough inspection right there) and bring it home with you. Would Australia allow you to do that? Just a thought.
EDIT: Who knows, if Adam knew you came all the way from down under, I bet he would make time to step out to the showroom and welcome you personally and make sure your rifle is 100% satisfactory.

That's beautiful, and excellent idea Tex!  Better yet, save on the extra luggage and buy the case in the US.  LMAO!!!!   ;D ;D

Now that sounds like a great idea lol. If it was easy to bring a rifle that isn't registered here in Australia in with me then I'd be bringing several with me. I am not exactly sure how it all works though.
In all honesty I have thought about a hunt in Wyoming as well as a visit to the Weatherby facility. It isn't going to happen any time soon though..

Well I will at least have some ammo by times the rifle gets here lol. These cases and dies turned up in the mail today. I will order some Barnes TSX's to run in it too.

the 416 is a great caliber brett, you will like it, I actually liked it better than the 460. The tsx's shot great in the one I had  8)

That's good to hear thanks Rob. TSX's shoot great in all my Weatherby's. So I may as well stick with them. But I will also try the Aussie made Atomic 29 all copper projectiles too.

BB, sorry to hear about the frustrations. I sure do appreciate your ability to make lemonade out of lemons though!

Not in Stock. I ordered 5 boxes. She told me that they had orders for 1060 boxes of 240 Wby ahead of me.
