WEATHERBY MK V .240 WEATHERBY MAG

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH A .240 WEATHERBY MAG RIFLE?
I UNDERSTAND THEY ARE GOOD FOR ANYTHING FROM JACKRABBITS TO MULE
DEER. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THOSE WHO HAVE USED THIS CARTRIDGE.

I had one years ago but never

I had one years ago but never use it on mule deer and I traided it in for a .257 Roberts.  It is a diecent round that really doesn't fit in unless you just want one.  It'll shoot a 75 grain bullet at around 3700 fps and a 90 grain one at around 3400 fps.  It has a simular case capacity as the .30-06.  It would make a fine antelope or deer round but finding cases is a big problem and factory ammo is quite expensive.  So unless you want it to just say that you have one and you reload or have a bucket of money for ammo there are other round out there that do almost just as good of a job as it does.
