Re: Best Scope For Big Game Rifle
The 280 won't chamber in a 270 factory chamber because of dimensional differences for safety of factory rifles, but making a 280 or 280AI out of the same action is OK. Same bolt face, and I usually use 270 Win brass to make a 280AI because the 270 brass has a tougher web than regular 280 or 06 brass. It just depends on what action length you use. If you stick to 140 gr bullets, the 284 comes close to the 280AI, but with heavier bullets the 280AI is superior. I like the short action and really light rifles, but light is defined by everyone differently. Most factoey syn stocks are not "light" by custom maker weights. But custom stocks are pricey. Again, you get what you pay for in scopes, stocks, custom actions, etc.
