Yes, wyomingblizzard, I know EXACTLY what you mean about trying to find a load for it. I've told myself, "I can't possibly be that bad of shot." At this point, I'd be thrilled for a one or two inch group. I've had mine bedded, put on a good trigger and had the scope rings drilled and tapped for bigger screws. The one thing i did discover was my scope was not tracking properly so it is on its way back to leupold and so i will be starting all over.

If the cause is the Weatherby free bore why not have a Gunsmith cut off a thread and re-chamber it ?

I have often wondered if it was me, the load, gun or scope! Sounds like we have seen the same problems. My rifle is a factory action and barrel, trigger work, bedded H.S stock. one piece base, burriss xtreem rings, vortex pst scope. I keep rechecking everything. I even went back to my old load, it still shoots 1/2moa out to 1k if i do my job right. The load I m testing now is shooting just under an inch at 100 but is only 1.5 inch at 300. I hope to go a little further out this week. My old load was with 210 barnes,didnt have any trouble working it up.

Re: Berger 250 otm on game performance

I had the exact same experience with my .340 Wby. certain stuff shot really, really well, others were all over (like 6" groups). What I thought was weird was that it liked all sorts of bullet wieghts, from 200's up to 250's. The best however were the 210 TTSx-loaded to the mag and 250 SGK's loaded single shot to lands (or free-bore).

Im thinking that If I can get these 250 Bergers to shoot well in my .338 RUM i may take the brake off.

Is this thread about 250's on game or is it a 340 reload seminar? Has anyone tried it on anything yet?
