That is one sweet rifle. I have wanted one in .257 Weatherby for a long time but have never pulled the trigger so to speed for one. Now with your .340 you have everything covered from antleope to bears. All you need to do now is to find a .224 Weatherby for varmets
Marty my buddy absolutely ruined a antelope with the wrong shot and bullet choice out of his!!! Never seen so much carnage!!! I have always wanted a .17 centerfire. Why, who knows. My 22-250 bull barrel is crazy accurate. We just want I guess!!!
Nice looking rifle. I have always wanted a 257 WBY. The bad thing for me up here is that ammo or brass are non existant so it wouldn't be a feasable choice for me. Lately I have problems finding loading components for my 338 and 243, never mind trying to find WBY brass
The 257 is an overlooked caliber in my mind, a lot of people here are caught up in the Short Magnum craze.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
