    New build. 340 Weatherby on a well tuned 375 length Whitworth Action. Barrel maker and contour not yet decided. A killer piece of English Walnut on the accurate innovations frame. Now what scope to use. I can use a Swarovski PH 3-12 with TDS, A Swarovski Z6i 2-12 TDS, or a Zeiss Victory FL 4-16. What say you> Other suggestions?

    I would take a look at the greybull precision scope. Was a little skeptical until i got one. Just a nice scope.

    All great choices! I am a big swaro fan as there customer service is outstanding. Leica/Zeiss seem to charge a ton for service, Swaro has never charged even for my own negligence. Customer service means a lot these days, Leupy has also provided great service. The 3-12 is a great rang for the caliber.

    What is terrain like,what is your farthest shooting, and target size? If you are going to stretch that 340's legs out I would go with the higher power

    I was thinking similar although all his choices are good with exceptional glass.

    I own one of Greybull Precision Leupold scope by John Burns and am going to order another one because I like it so well. My 25-06 has one and I will put one on my 7mm RUM next. Shot an antelope with the 2506 at 463 yards. Very pleased.

    That powerhouse 340WBY needs something like this- The Zeiss Victory 6-24X56 T*VM/V. This is a great scope:). Some day I hope to have one. After hunting season is the best time to buy a scope. Good luck with your build, that 340 will be a blast to shootgun) Bill Maylor..
