Putting together a lightweight mountain rifle using 140-160gn bullets (preferably barnes & accubonds).
Any pros/cons of going controlled round feed vs push/feed or vice versa for the 280ai??
For me, hunting is very often a one shot affair. I carry my rifle chambered with the safety on. So there is no difference between a CRF and a modern push feed.
If you anticipate the need for a rapid 2nd shot then the CRF is a better bet for you.
Don't get me wrong, I love my 270 WSM Featherweight CRF, but my Rem 700 7mm and my Browning 270 shoot very well and reload (rechamber??) quickly.
