Re: Undecided on a new Cartrige
Nothing wrong with the .280 rem, or especially the .280 AI, which gives the option of using both rounds if need be. Sadly factory ammo is a bit lacking in the .280, but handloading the AI will get you pretty much the 7mag with less powder burned.
I shoot 7mag just for the ease of brass and if need be (gasp!) factory rounds. I would recomend in to anyone that reloads and may ever consider long range hunting or targets for many factors. Not the least being that i shoot mine without the brake and could not be happier, i try to stay away from the ear splitting tendancys of a brake on a hunting rifle is at all possible.
Just my 2 cents.
