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.

From big hogs in California to bears in AK. The 340 has knocked them all down with ease. 225 X bullets are great in this caliber. It does have a bit of a kick.
To much of a good thing you bet, using 225 grain Barnes triple shock bullets on buffalo, elk, deer and African plains game I have never had a cripple or had to use a second shot
I have used my 340 Weatherby for Elk hunting for 25 years, and it performs
superbly at all distances. I use handloads with a 210 gr. Nosler partition bullet
and 90 grs. of H4831 powder. Needless to say, it packs a lethal punch on
all North American game.
