    I am a Weatherby product fan, with much fun and success in a few calibers. In a factory .240 Fibermark circa 1995, the 100 nosler partitions have higher velocity and are a going Jessie. On 175 lb Texas whitetail, this bullet is very, very potent with excellent accuracy and hits with a whallop out to 300 yards. Many deer instant lethal drops. Partitions are not suppose to be a long range bullet…nonsense. Recoil on this magnum load is very manageable,

    Spitzers represent great value load.

    On small to medium game, the .240 Weatherby is a smoke stack lightening bolt.

    I bought a Vanguard Back Country in 240 Weatherby Mag last year. The rifle loves the 100 gr. Spitzers. Clover leafs 3 rounds at 100 yd. easily. Great Whitetail deer and black buck round.

    I’ve been hunting with my 240 mag for over 10 years. I’ve been shooting 100 grain spitzers and have seen great accuracy and haven’t had to chase down any whitetail. In fact it’s hard to find the bullet afterwards, it expands and explods very well, dropping deer in there tracks. Would recommend this caliber to anyone wanting performance without a lot of recoil.

  5. N8iV Warrior in Central Oregon

    My rifle loves the 100 gr spritzers and it lays the smack down on monster Mule deer bucks in Central Oregon. I have shot the factory round on steel out to 800 yds on steel and very consistent Ammo on steel. I will be purchasing more and recommend this Ammo to family and friends. Great job Weatherby keep up the good work and beautiful rifles in the Mark V series.
