Re: Defensive Edge - "Sheep Hunter" in 280 Ack Imp

What kind of velocities can you get with the 280ai, 160AB and a 24" barrel? I have been kicking around a similar idea but had almost settled on 7wsm instead. I want to build it myself so mine will be on a Savage action.

    Forester,

    While I like the 280 AI, I like the 7 WSM better for most things. The Ackley will run the 160 NAB at 2840 fps in the rifle you see pictured. Most of the 7 WSM's I have built will run it 3050-3100 fps. I also like the powders the 7 WSM uses alot better. I have had wonderfull results with the 7 WSM and 168 Berger bullets.

    I'm a left hander and love that rifle Shawn.
    Why don't you bring it to New Zealand and I will take you on a Himalayan bull Tahr hunt. (the bad boys of alpine regions,living on glaciers and the steepest ****** terrain.)including transport and accomodation,might even treat you to a chopper trip.
    No money needs to change hands you can leave that very coool rifle with me.
    That is legal in NZ as it could be classed as a gift.

    PM me for more info if interested.
    Regards,
    Nigel.
