Thanks for the prompt response Rich, PM was sent as well in case you didn't see this. Is the .280 Sherman being built by you or another? Very interested in this for my next Mauser build.

    A friend of mine in in Lewistown Mt. is having it built by Jeff Lawrence (Lawrence barrels)
    I'm pretty sure it will top 3100' with a 160+ grainer out of a 26" barrel since my 6.5 with the same case and barrel length will reach 3200' with a 140 in a .020" smaller bore....Rich
