Kirby,
So your saying to run the 270 brass through an '06 sizer, then through the 280 AI sizer?

Cowboy,
I definitely will. Depending on how fast communication goes and production, I hope to have the gun by mid-May to early June, all depending on how long it takes to make.

Re: 280 JDJ or 280 Ackley Improved

7ultra,

Yes, if you do not you will have excessive headspace and in while in a tight custom chamber this would probably not lead to a firearm failure, it will at best severly stretch your case heads dramatically shortening case life.

At worst, you will have a total case head seperation and then things get exciting.

TO be honest, for the pressure limits the Encore system should be subjected to, I would just use the correct 280 Rem brass. If oyu push the loads hard enough to see any advantage in the thicker case head of the 270, you will be getting frame flexing as well.

Good SHooting,

Kirby Allen(50)
