Re: Remington 700 Mountain Rifle 280
I think the 280 is a perfect start. Use the 140 VLD and it should get out farther than you would think. Once you have shot the barrel out then you can start looking at other cartridges or a rebarrel to maybe a 280 AI. I have seen them shoot very comparable ballistic wise to a 7 Rem Mag. I would personally stick with the 6.5's or the 7's unless you really want to go big with the 338's.
