Re: .280 AI controversy explained ...

I am checking out of this thread, and will spend my time in the "Isreali - Palestinian Peace" forum instead. Sorry, I just think there is a better chance for a peaceful agreement and understanding over there. I will miss you guys though.

Original PO Ackley 14 thou longer case till I die! Come and get me you SAMMI chamber insurgent scum!!!

I find it odd that the most bent guy about this also has no use for a head space gauge!

Re: .280 AI controversy explained ...

I have plenty of gauges, just not what some would call "headspace gauges". Hornady calls them headspace gauges but they really don't measure headspace, particularly on belted cases.

They however do very well at measuring how much the shoulder expands from one firing to the next

But of course you know this and just want to join the dart throwing crowd

When I start reaming chambers I suppose I will then need your "headspace gauges"

If I had never tried Nosler brass I would have never had known there was a problem. Read this again Real slow from top to bottom.
280 Ackley Improved Alert | GunsmithTalk
If you can't under stand that the old chambers are different you are just stirring the pot. I don't understand what your purpose is?

If that link is not enough, just google 280 Ackley alert and there are lots of people on other web sites that say there is a difference from Nosler SAMMI and the old way of doing a 280 Ackley chamber. I myself am not going to try and explain the differnce anymore. I don't care if you if you get it or not, I can't help you. I am done with this.
Can you please explain why Gunsmtih talk are held up as being an advocate of the difference when after doing some actual physical testing they clearly recant their original position and say there is no difference? Because this and a few other questions that Iv asked but cant get answered are just adding to the confusion. JE Custom backed away, woods calls bullchips and smoke and mirriors, and others just cry " there is a difference" Id just like a friendly discussion and to get some answers. And yes I have experience with 4 280ai rifles, 2 customs from 2 different shops a M54 and a kimber. The cooper is mine the the others I had for load development.

You don't even know what you don't know!! How do you explain the guys who don't have this issue using both kinds of brass? How do you explain the video showing the head space gauge clearly marked zeroing out on each others chamber? How can you call BS when you don't even posses the basic gauging that would allow you to know EXACTLY what you have!!

Yes I do have a tight chamber. There is very little expansion in the case body but the ONLY reason that creates a problem is because my Redding Body Die does not have small enough interior dimensions to size the pressure ring. The problem is with the die, not the chamber

Do you have a problem with tight custom chambers?

So you found a thread about the do-nuts I developed in 280AI brass (appears Tnwhip has the same problem) where I clearly said I preferred 280 Rem brass, claimed that I had said I "had no problems"

Now you found a thread where I attempted to explain how a problem can occur if you have a tight chamber and a large die

Keep trying, maybe the 3rd time will be the charm for you, although it does begin to appear like this is becoming a personal attack on me. Typical modus operandi for liberals; can't fight in the arena of factual information so attack the credibility of the other party

Just like your buddy STRAW MAN FEENIX.

This thread would work a lot better if you would bring personal experience with the 280AI like Cockcroft, Tnwhip and I. If you don't have any direct personal experience then the thread would work a lot better if you would STFU
Woods, I have 280AI and I've followed your post on Nosler,24Hr and here and I've seen your groups.

You had according to your post no problems with Nosler 280AI brass and I have no problems with it and you can check my post here my wife has 280AI chamber 2007 and I have no problems chambering Nosler 280AI. Like you I had to fire form brass with that rifle and that rifle wasn't build to SAAMI 280AI spec but Manson reamer was used.

I'm the guy that loads 280AI with 160gr AB @ 56gr/R-17 @ 3046fps.

Had I not be able to shoot Nosler brass in my wife's 280AI it wouldn't of bother me since I fire form enough brass and I'm sure you did. When my rifle was build I send along dummy rds for throating using Nosler 280AI brass and if there was a problem first one I'd be talking to is the gunsmith.

I think had some followed your post like I did and reason I did along with JD338 on Nosler forum was for loading data that you both had and then your posting of those three cases is little odd. I think you should of given little more history on your 280AI.

Good part is your still shooting that 280AI and I'm enjoying mine also.

Could be several reasons

They have the new SAAMI chamber
They don't have the gauges to measure shoulder movement
They just didn't notice the excess shoulder expansion

How do you explain the guys (3 on this forum) who have paid attention and DO have this problem?

I don't, makes no sense to me since I do not use those type of gauges

He did use NORMA 280AI brass which may be different than the NOSLER 280AI

He put the 280 REMINGTON brass in the traditional gauge with no head space and put the NORMA 280AI in the SAAMI gauge - both were flush at the back as they should be. If he had put a 280AI NOSLER brass in the traditional gauge then there might have been a difference

When he switched the cases/gauges, did the head of the case go in further or can it? Is it tight to the shoulder/neck junction on the gauge?

I don't know cause I wasn't there and it was not very detailed or have very much explanation, much like the discussions from those who say the .014" does not exist. Just here it is, nuff said!

I use the Hornady gauges. Essentially you use a collet that hits on the datum line (or close to it)






From my records (I wish I had a piece of unfired Nosler 280AI brass so I could measure again) the gauge read 2.1350" on new brass (after rezeroing the caliper with collet attached and subtracting the 2" for the collet) and 2.1520" after the 3rd firing (fully expanded). A difference of .017", it was .014" after the first firing

So what's to not understand?
