MarkA,

I really like the specs on your 280AI. I am thinking of having Dan build me one. How is the gun shooting since breaking it in and using reloads?

We haven't had a chance to try reloads through it yet. Been hooked up gettin ready for muzzleloading and soon a little bow huntin. We have finished a barrel breaking in shooting the Nosler factory ammo. Gotta say I'm still really impressed with it. It keeps wanting to hang around .6 MOA with those factory loads. Through all the break in and clean vs fouled and all kinds of conditions the worst group I've shot has been 1 3/4" at 200 and that was after I had been shooting a while so much of that was the shooter!

Once season is over we'll try some handloads and see how it does past 500. Its the best shooting gun I've owned hands down. Pleasant to shoot too. Recoil is minimal.

Quick update - this season this gun was broke in right. Killed 2 does and 2 coyotes. One coyote was 220yds and trotting - made a perfect shot Hoping to stretch it out more when I get the chance.

Also, made some more range sessions after working the copper out of the barrel. It's to the point it almost won't copper at all anymore.

So far it's staying around 0.65 MOA - that's still shooting the Nosler Custom factory ammo (140gr Accubond). We're fixing to start playing hand loads now, lots of fun.
