 8) Hi everyone!  Does WBY make standard ammo anymore? Or are they making them just for the magnum calibers and varmit loads? Is there plans to possible start up the standard ammo again?

Weatherby doesn't actually make the ammunition. Its made for Weatherby by Norma. Very good ammunition I must say. But to answer your question, They don't stock any ammunition with their name on it for Calibers that are not Their own making. Interestingly enough you could buy a Vanguard in 270 WSM. Weatherby sell you the rifle but since its a Winchester creation, you have to by other factory ammo. I.E. Remington, Federal, winchester...try Mid Way Sports and shooting Supplies. They have a huge ammo dump there. Asta..

This is from the FAQ section of weatherby.com (see note):

"Weatherby currently manufactures ammunition for Weatherby Magnum calibers only, and has no intentions to manufacture on an ongoing basis standard cartridge ammunition. Weatherby recommends you purchase premium standard cartridge ammunition from a high quality ammunition manufacturer.

NOTE Weatherby did produce a small run of non-Weatherby caliber ammunition in 1997. Calibers included: .270 Win., .30-06 Spfd., 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., .338 Win. Mag., and .375 H&H Mag."

They also still make ammo for the 338-06 A^2.

BTW ... what is the difference between a standard 338-06 and the A^2 variant??
