280 Remington

I acquired a 280 Remington mountain rifle shot very little .

Its has a 1 in 9 twist barrel 22"

It's fed thru a mag box

Have not shot it yet but was thinking 168 hybrid Berger or 180 hybrid
I think bergers book IMR 4350 43 grains 2647 on the 180 would like to shoot the gun to 700-800 .

Would the 168 be better for those ranges ?
Thing is I want to try the hybrids due to they less seating sensitive .

And ideas or options ?

Thanks

Re: 280 Remington

the 700 mtn is a very light rifle more suited to carrying than long range shooting . both of mine shoot very good groups though. i would use either 140 or 168 bergers. i would probably have a brake installed .
