    Shawn,
    I would come left one click to bring that group to center. ha ha!
    Seriously though, that is one nice 400 yd group from one nice looking rifle. And you even put the bolt on the correct side!

    Very nice Shawn.
    I agree with you, the 160 gr AB and RL22 is the ticket for the 280 AI.
    I have a M700 with a #5 Hart 24" fluted barrel.

    280ai

    My 280 AI also loves the R-22 and 160 accubonds. Getting just over 3000 fps out of a factory weatherby tube that was improved. Last Pm shot 3 into .6 off stix at 150 yards. Dean
    PS. I drew a utah Dutton elk tag this year and like my 280AI but think I should probably take my 338 win mag. Anyone have any real world performance of 160 acc on elk? PM are fine if this is off subject for this thread. Thanks
