A Browning BAR in 280 rem

I very much want a BAR in this chambering! I can't find one anywhere. The few online have been sold. I did find one through cabelas but they wanted an arm and a leg. I'd just like a good used one. Anybody?

Also any info on this rifle in this chambering would be great! They seem to be so few and far between. Any info would be awesome! Including loads for hunting, practical range, and bullet weight.

Why a BAR and not a bolt action?

That's what I'm wondering....

Why not buy an A-Bolt II or Rem 700 already chambered in .280 Rem, then have your local smith ream the chamber to .280 Ackley Improved. That would be an easier and more accurate alternative to the BAR.

I love hunting with BAR's!! I need the 280, 338 win mag, to have almost all of the chambering a they offer. I've had a 700 BDL in 280! Fine rifle! I traded it. However I'd now like to have a used one in bolt action as well. Simply to have it Ackley improved.

The only problem is that they only chambered the 280 rem for a year and a half maybe two. Makes them tough to find.
