2. pacnor barrel
3. stock of choice
you can seat the bullets way out if you use a long action and its not a heavier magnum action. it seems people that are using this are liking it. win brass is cheap.
Im building a sako 75 in 280ai but i dont think 2950 would be an attainable goal in 280ai with the 180's thats why im going to try to use the 168s. the 284 was my next choice.
I totally agree ! Savage all the way, Accuracy and reasonable price... Not starting a war here but I sold one Remington 'cause I'm no gunsmith and good ones are hard to find in the sticks...
