Re: So what are you guys running out of your .280 REMs?

160 accubonds have been great for me. The BC is good and is a great hunting bullet. when i first got my 280 i loaded up 3 different loads all at 57gr. and 3 different lengths and they all shot just over an inch to just under an inch at 200yards.
