Re: Would You Use a 280 AI For Elk
A bit bigger boiler room or bigger hole in the barrel might help in a bad angle type shot, but the 280 (either one) is one mean cartridge for it's size. Only 2-3 hundred fps down from a 7 stw. Heck, I know at least one person who went back to his 280 because it was faster, more accurate, and burned less powder that his 7mm rem. If you watch your shots and use a proven bullet, it should work fine.
