can 25-06 brass be made into 240 wheatherby or is the 240 weatherby a breed of it's own??..Or am i way out of wack on this
My experience with the .240 was in a custom chambered Hart barrel w/ 1-9 twist. I hand loaded for it, bought Norma brass. The **** thing would drive nails. But, it's an idiot round. It won't do anything a good custom barreled 6mm Ackley can't do and the 6mm will do it with less of a charge. I'm a firm believer that the 6mm Ackley is about max efficent case size for the 6mm/.243s. Anything more is just a waste of powder. Been there, done that,,, don't think I'll go back again. When I toast this Ackley I'll rebarrel to the same. PS I found alot of variation in case size with the factory loaded .240,,,,,, much more than I feel I should have for Norma made cases.
