Re: 280 Ackley Improved load info

Chuck the recoil will depend on how well your stock fits you but it's not much more than a standard .280. I'm getting 2950-3050 fps. with the Retumbo load and very tight groups .179" for 4 shots. at 100yrds. That is with a blueprinted and squared Rem. action Pac-Nor barrel and HS precision stock and Leu 4-14 x 40(AO).

    My gun will have a 26 inch douglas stock, not sure whats been done to the action, will put a jewell trigger in it when I get it, the gunsmith that will be sending it to me is going to install an M16 extractor and see what the stock needs, its a thumb hole stock. I am getting excited now. I was almost going to sell my 8lb jug of retumbo, glad I didn't now.

    Freebird, my smith is tied up until the end of June but with some luck I'll be working up loads by August. What dies did you get for yours? Maybe we can get together and shoot them sometime. I've got a bench south of town.

    I have not got it yet mojo, I traded my sendero with brass and a set of dies for the Ackley and brass and dies. The 280 will be easier on me for packing while hunting, if I am even able to hunt, everything right now depends on my back.

    Forrest,

    Is there truly 100fps spread in your velocities, or are those guesstimations with Retumbo?
