Any Weatherby Rifle owners

I have a 7mm Weatherby mag in my collection.

 

It is a flat shooter that shoots with the best of them only one problem. It is very $$$ to shoot. Even reloading is looking expensive. Any ideas on where to get decent ammo would be great.

I shoot a .340 Weatherby and

I shoot a .340 Weatherby and reload for it.  Reloading isn't that costly once you have your brass since that is the most costley of the components.  Once you have the brass then you can reload for quite a bit less than buying the ammo.  Now if you watch the sales you can pick up loaded ammo and empty brass at a diecent price.  The brass should last you a number of reloadings unless you are shooting maximum pressures out of your rifle.

WEATHERBY 7 MAG

YOU'RE RIGHT ABOUT THE FACTORY LOADED WEATHERBY AMMO BEING

EXPENSIVE.  EVEN THE AMMO LOADED BY FEDERAL WHOLESALES FOR

$49-50. PER BOX!  WEATHERBY AMMO (HORNADY INTERLOCK BULLET)

WHOLESALES FOR ABOUT $43. PER BOX.  IF RELOADING IS STILL TOO COSTLY,

YOU MIGHT HAVE THE RIFLE REBARRELED TO, MAYBE, 7MM REMINGTON MAG.

OR YOU COULD SELL OR TRADE THE RIFLE.  HOWEVER, THE 7 WEATHERBY MAG

IS ONE HECK OF A ROUND.....I THINK I WOULD BUY A HUNDRED BRASS, DIES,

BULLETS AND RELOAD THE SUCKER.  YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR

THAT ROUND.   GOOD LUCK.
