I never had much luck with the Barnes TTSX in my .340 either. But it absolutely loves the standard 225grn TSX. So I bought a bucket load of them to last a considerable time.

Congrats on a long and I suspect happy time in the Air Force. I am sure you will enjoy your retirement and be able to do a lot more hunting and fishing.
On the hunting side, you really must save save and save some more so as to be able to afford a hunt for a big old dugga boy with that .416 Rigby. It is such a fun and dangerous hunt at the same time.

I have used the Weatherby custom shop a few times and they have always delivered on or very close to the timeframe they have quoted me. And that includes getting it shipped down here to Australia.... So yeah maybe it's just you.... ;D

Maybe some of you folks could post video of your latest safari hunt.

Here is a link to my video if you haven't seen it BuffaloBill. I have posted it on here before and most of the guys have seen it.

Looks like it turned out alright. I have used those kits before with some good results.

I would love to get the Adventure 307 but Weatherby won't give us Aussies any! They won't let us know until later in the year if or when we will get any of them. May have to buy one of these Alpines instead...

Hey legolas8 if you do find some data and get to do some shooting with it, could you stick around and put up a post showing us your data, velocity etc.?

Why not just leave it, walk around it and ya won't get bit either! Hate this motto of only snake is a good snake....

thanks guys sure was a fun peaceful morning;

Peaceful with a 30-378... ??? ;D

Wow that thing must be screaming fast! I don't have any load data for you, but I am interested in finding out the ballistics you get from it.

Nice. Sounds like you had a great day out. The 30-378 is a hungry monster that's for sure. I just loaded up some 200grn Accubonds in my 30-378 to shoot some pigs down here. My mate has been getting quite a few pigs over 100kgs and they have been running quite far when hit with his 22-250 and 7mm-08. He was wanting to buy a big 30 cal so I suggested he borrow the biggest one and take my 30-378 and sort those big boars out.

Happy belated Birthday. And wow congrats on one fine looking truck. Sure wish Ford would bring them down here...
