Re: .280 ackley

4KED HORN Ray Romain built my rifle. He used his reamer. the throat is long enough for the heavier bullets,but i can still seat a 140 gr. flat base bullet against the lands. The chamber is not a tight neck. I use a standard redding full length die to neck size my brass. Rays phone number is 814-265-1948. He has done a lot of work for me and his work is excellent.

Re: .280 ackley

Rem My freind Dave in Idaho had a 6.5 gibbs built by Ray and he has been quite happy with it. Thats one of the things I like about the .280, It's bigger than daves pet rifle round. Hehe.

Thanks again for the info. I will probably be asking more questions as this project continues. As I said in another post, this will be on the drawing board for quite a while but I am making notes and changes to notes constantly so all this info is not lost over time.

4ked Horn,..my gunsmith is located in Laurel Delaware. Likewise,..I can get the 140NBT firmly against the lands in my throat. Mike owns the reamer and has cut quite a few chambers in 280AI. This tube will group 140's all the way to the 162's.
