    Has any one tried the 300 grain berger in a 340 weatherby? If you have what were your results and what is your load? I am wanting to try them but havent been able to get them yet. Thanks

    I found that I lost case capacity and think a 225 or 250 is better suited to that round.Get a larger case more designed for the 300 grain.The Lapua wasnt originally designed, even for the 300,but rather the 250.I was using long drop tube and compressed load.
