I have the opportunity to buy a mark v synthetic in .240 weatherby for a very reasonable price. The rifle is like new, and has been shot maybe 15-20 times. Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with this caliber, as I do not. I have experience with the .257 and .300 wby. mags, and have owned rifles chambered for both of those calibers. It seems to me that the .240 would probably be an ideal deer round, and the recoil should be even less than the .257, which itself is very mild IMHO. My only concern would be the occasional close shot, and the possibility of bullet blow up. The area that I hunt is mostly open and has a few areas where you can get 300 yard shots. However, you could also get a shot at 50 yards or less. As I do not reload, I would have to choose from the Weatherby factory offerings. The only two that really interest me are the 90 grain barnes x-bullet, and the 100 grain nosler partition. I was hoping that at least one person here has some experience with this round, and could maybe address my concerns. Any help is greatly appreciated.
