Take the rag where you read it and put it in the outhouse for the paperwork. And, no you can't use the 7mag to shoot 280s.

Re read carefully what is written. both the 280Remington and the 7mm Rem mag are known by other names (as is the 6mm Remington. Either way, no, you cant... if you could get it to fire (which due to how both rounds headspace is not likley) it would very probably rupture the case, and spew nasty stuff... like high pressure gas and flaming propellant... from every crack and crevace on the gun.

280 Remington and 7mm Express Remington are interchangeable.
6mm Remington and 244 Remington are interchangeable.
from remington.com and i called them at 1-800-243-9700 and the lady on the phone said yes 7mm rem mag and 280 are interchangeable. Then i asked "so i can shoot 280 through my 7mm mag" she said yes you can. That sounded odd to me so i came to you guys. So if you wondering why i asked what seems like a dumb question is because remington told me a 7mm mag can safely shoot 280 remington. So has anyonw heard of someone who has tried this
