280 Rem loads

Hey
I was wondering if anyone had any pet loads for the 280 Rem. I am wanting to get as much velosity as I can and still be accurate. Will I be able to get 3000+ with 140 Accubonds because that is the bullet I am wanting to use
Thanks Ted

Re: 280 Rem loads

Ted,

I grew up in S.W. Va. and I still think of myself as a Virginian even though I now live in Tn. and do most of my deer hunting in Nebraska.

Over the last few years I have come to enjoy shooting and loading for the 280 Rem.. I have a Model 700 Rem CDL with a 24 inch barrel.

Can you get 3000 Ft/sec with accuracy out of your gun? I think you can if your gun likes the 140 Accubonds.

Here are some loads that I have used.

1. !40 Accubond, RP cases, 210M primers,54.5 grains of RL-17. Average velocity 2989 ft/sec. This is the load that I used to take a big Nebraska deer. My last three shots before heading to Neb. measured .36 inch at 100 yards.

2. 140 Accubond, RP cases, WLR primers, 57 grains of RL-19, Average velocity 2974 ft/sec.. This an accurate load in my gun but not quite as accurate as the RL-17 load. I have taken deer with this load and my son uses it in his Ruger 77 to take many deer.

3. Factory Load. Hornady Superperformance 139 GMX. Average velocity out of my gun 3064 ft/sec.. Not as accurate as the two loads listed above.

4. Barnes 140 grains TSX. RP cases, WLR primers, RL-22, 59.5 grains. Average velocity 3046 ft/sec.. I have never shot a deer with these last two loads but this one is more accurate than the factory load.



If you use any of the loads listed above make sure you start low and work up.

I use the 140ab. I can get 2975fps with h-4831sc fed210 primers R/P cases charge running at 59gr. Of coarse work up to that. I'm still under 3/4 inch with this load. My best is with 1/2gr less punching holes that measure 3/8" outside dia at 2950fps average.

Re: 280 Rem loads

I shoot a custom 280 in a Rem action 24" Hart. RL-22 55.5 gns with the Barnes 140TSx or the 140 Sierra Pro hunter( flat base ) getting 3000+ fps. The Sierra shoots bug holes sub bore groups out to 300 yards the Barnes will shoot moa only. Both kill well the Seirra has had kills up to 400+ yds with great expansion and knock down. Jump is.002.

Re: 280 Rem loads

Keep it comin. It's my favorite round and I have two. One I have not shot yet and am working on putting a scope on it this is why I haven't shot it yet. But my other one is a CDL remmy 700. I have some 140 ttsx to try and have not got e around to it yet but soon. The ttsx and accubonds one are the only ones I have for it. I though of going to 150gr but haven't decided yet. I was also going to try hodgdons superformance to see how that will work. Hopefully soon.

Re: 280 Rem loads

I have not tried anything but 140's but my gun likes the Sierras. If it ain't broke don't fix it. But I'm getting ready to load some 160 Accubonds for a friend who has a Dakota. And he wants a heavier bullet for larger game. His shoots factory loads fine and he will not shoot over 300 yds. It's going to slow it down a bit, but if it shoots well, it doesn't really matter. Will let you know how they shoot.
