    I'd have to say the 340.

    While I've never been a big Weatherby fan the 340 just seems like the way to go.

    Well I have a .300 and a .257. I have the .300 for Elk. Teh .257 is for maiy for antelope at 300+ yards. For only 1 I would take the .300, it is an excellent elk round. A little much for deer unless you shoot n the head or neck.

    I looked at one . But my buddy had one and swore at it. Said the ballistics were not on par with other Weatherby's,

    He has a bad apple or it just needs fine tuning.

    I have a custom built .300wby w/ a 26" barrel that started as a plain blued Vanguard. I shoot the Weatherby factory 165gr Nosler ballistic tips. I use it mainly for white tail, which everyone says it's WAY too much gun. However I only take neck shots and it's my gun of choice because it's laser flat to 300 yards.
