Re: 280 AI (again)

I bounced around this thread a little so did not read everything that was said, but the shoulder DOES look very rounded to me and neither A.I. chambering should look like that? That looks more like a case that was fire formed with cream of wheat and shotgun powder and the one on the left looks more like it should look after firing? Chamber it in .280 Sherman whick will clean it all up and give you more performance.......rich

UPDATE: Finally spoke to Dakota. They are having me ship the gun back. "Richard" agreed with me that the fired case should not look like it has a rounded Weatherby looking shoulder. Ships tomorrow. To Be Continued.....

UPDATE ON THE DAKOTA 280AI:

The rifle has been back at Dakota for about 6 weeks. I have emailed them two times and finally got a response this week:
Still trying to get to it. I try every Friday, but the work load is still a bit overwhelming. Please stay in touch and I will do my best to complete the project soon.
Thanks,

Ward Dobler | Operations Manager
( Dakota Arms ) Remington Arms Company, LLC/FGI

My reply was " I can save you the trouble of working on it , just buy it back from me".... no response as of yet.

Remlin ! Got to love them . They got your money and you are not a priority but just a problem to be ignored. Cerbus Capitol Management has seem the last of my money a few years ago.

Dakota said there is nothing wrong with my rifle. They want me to check the dies. Whatever....

So my prediction that they would declare it good and stick you with it has born out ? Typical of Freedom Group. Banksters scamming as a gun company.

Re: 280 AI (again)

UPDATE: Started this thread about the difference between saami Ackley and the PO Ackley 280. Also told everyone about the "trouble" I was having with the Dakota 97. I even sent it back to Dakota. They sent it back saying the chamber was good to go. Well as you can see from the pic I got the gun to shoot!
Group was shot @ 100 yards off the bench. 38 degress with a slight wind to my back. Remington fire formed case. 140 gr Nosler Ballistic tip over 60.0 grains of IMR 4831. OAL. 3.444 Group measures .556 - .284 = .272.
