340 Weatherby Shooters
What are your experiences with the .340 Wthby ? I have a chance to pick up a custom on a blueprinted model 700 action, 25-inch Lilja barrel etc. Current owner is an honest guy who has made multiple Africa trips, and says the beast is just too much recoil for him. No brake -- he says that many PHs will not allow them (did not know that). The ballastics look really interesting but I have never shot one of know anyone that has.
Are the 340s generally that nasty? Is a brake the only way to tame it? I'm not real sensitive to recoil, but no don't enjoy getting beat up any more. Also not a big fan of brakes. Already have hearing issues.
