340 weatherby input/loads

Inquiring about the 340 bee. What would you recommend or have experience for bullets and loads?
Just am in the process of finding what works especially at distance.
Rifle is an accumark that just got back from a bedding and trigger job.

Thanks!

Randy

P.S.--I did try and do a search but couldn't find anything but hey, my VCR still flashes 12:00 all the time......................
Yeah, yeah, I know, "Whats a VCR?"

Re: 340 weatherby input/loads

I have 2 .338 Baer's and they both like H1000, 7828, and R-22. The H-1000 loads were slightly more accurate in both guns but all 3 powders are within 50fps of each other. From 2870 to 2920fps with 250gr Sierra SBT's and Lapua Scenars. The more accurate rifle likes 88grs of H-1000 but that might be a light load for a .340 Weatherby because of the freebore. For all practical purposes the 2 cartridges are the same but I think the Baer's have slightly more capacity.
