Re: 280 AI Range Report
Seeing posts like this keep me in trouble. In the not so distant future, I want to have a "series" built on either the 308 or 30-06 case. In other words, either .243 AI, 260 AI and 708 AI or .25-06 AI, 6.5 AI and 280 AI. With the 308 cases, I have been toying with the idea of building a short range hog/brush gun to meet my hunting demands in East TX (and AK and Africa someday). I've been leaning towards a 9.3-08 or .375-08 for that purpose.
I don't know of any advantage the '06 family has over the 308-based rounds other than velocity and LA instead of SA. I want to set them all up identical, with the exception of the big-bore. It will be based on a 20-22" Model 7 clone, only better. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Anyone care to offer advantages/disadvantages to either class based on experience. About 75% of the gun's rounds would be shot at LR paper due to my schedule. They would all see some time afield, but that would be a secondary function.
