Already have a 280 ai. Its a little heavy to carry rifle alone weighs 17 lbs with a 28'' barrel. I guess I could rebarrel it and make it a hunting rifle but I sure do like shooting paper with it

I just saw that you were already looking at a long action with the 25-06 and the other option being a short action in 7mm so I figured the 280 would better option than the two you had. So build a lighter 280 ;) If going to a short action Im really tempted to build a 6mm AI or a 260 as my mountain gun for deer and black bear

I second the 7/08 due to heavier bullet selection.
