.280 rem load data

I'm looking for load data on the 280 rem if you got a favorite load, or powder i would like to here about it. I'm mostly interested in 150-160 grain bullet data.

Re: .280 rem load data

I am loading for two different 280 Rem rifles. My son uses a Ruger 77 Mark II to shoot deer. He has taken 4 deer with this rifle and the load his gun likes is a Nosler 140 Accubond and RL-19 powder in Remington case, and WLR primers.
I followed the Nosler #6 Manual to develop this load. I worked up to the max listed 57. grains of RL-19. This load also works well in my Rem 700 CDL in 280 Rem. . This load gives just over 2900 ft/sec in my 24 inch barrel and just under 2900 in my son's Ruger.
This is an outstanding load for taking deer.

Re: .280 rem load data

My fave load
160 Accubond
59-1/2 grains IMR-7828
Rem Brass neck sized
CCI-200 primer

I have not even run this load over the cronograph, so far this year it has taken 3 deer one Black Bear One doe at 125 yards one doe at 212 yards one buck this morning at 327 yards and the Bear at 272 yards. Luck was with me on all three deer as all had hearts turned to mush. Shot the bear through both shoulders and he just folded up. Both does dropped at the shot and this morning's 4 pointer made about 30 yards before piling up. First time ever in a season I have heart shot all my deer as the saying goes " I would rather be lucky than good" Now I just have to fill my Muley tags fingers crossed.
