Yes it's nice there seems to be a couple viable powders. Looks like I'm gonna have to pick up some H1000, unfortunately this just complicated the load tuning process.

    But still, I would love to find a load for IMR 7828 SSC, if anyone has a good one for the 160 NAB's and 168 Berger VLD's.
    Nosler has start load of 57.5gr/IMR-7828 @ 2856fps max of 61.5gr/IMR-7828 @ 3043fps with 160gr AB for the 280AI. I started 56.5gr/IMR-7828ssc @ 2828fps and worked up to 58.5gr/IMR-7828ssc @ 3038fps using Fed 210M primers and was good accurate load in my 280AI. I've got some Berger 168gr VLD but just haven't had time to work any loads up.

    IMR-7828ssc is my back up load using R-17.

    Well good luck

    I am working up a load for my .280 A.I. using IMR 4831 and CCI BR-2. Will let you know how this turns out. I do not have a chronograph but I will show my results with load data.

    I have tried Retumbo, H1000, IMR4350, H4831SC and IMR7828SSC. It looks like I am going to stay with H4831SC with 160gr accubonds.
