.340 Weatherby Magnum, Weatherby, 200 Grain Nosler Accubond Bullet, 20 Round Box.
Weatherby ammunition remains true to the concept Roy Weatherby developed in the 1940s, the faster a bullet traveled, the better. The flatter it would shoot, the less it would drop, the harder it would hit, the better its terminal performance. At the same time, our ammunition also takes advantage of the latest in controlled expansion bullets which are capable of harnessing the higher velocities to create a cartridge that provides the ultimate in penetration, large wound channels and more one shot kills.
Introduced in 1963, the .340 Weatherby was designed as a response to the .338 Winchester Mag. However, Roy took advantage of the longer case to pack in more powder for greater velocity. And, it shoots heavier .338 bullets at higher velocities as well, a decidedly powerful combination. Ideally suited for animals the size of elk or larger, the .340 can also be used by deer hunters with lighter bullet weights.
