Thanks Ted
I have been working with Hogdon's Superformance in my 280 with 140 AB's. I ran out of time to work an accurate load up before deer season arrived. Getting 3000 fps with this powder is no problem. I just have to work on jump to get it shooting as tight as I would like. Clean burning easy to light and very good speed. Start at 54-55 grains and work up to a safe max in your rifle. This powder just might suprise you as it did to me when I first started working with it. Have loads now for 300 wsm 30-06 and almost 280.

This load:




was used to kill this buck:





Did that at just over 200 yards and killed a small 8pt in KY the day after I got home from CO with the same stuff. Bullet goes a WHOPPING 2750 fps and the deer just collapsed.

Re: 280 Rem loads

That is some awesome stuff there. Congrats and I'd love to whack a mulie.
I have the superformance. Have not tried it yet but getting ready to start working it up. I have the CDL remmy that I have accubonds for and and a CDL SF that I want to use the superformance in. I just mounted a Swaro 3-10x42 av on it. So it's ready to go just have to get those new brass loaded up and try it out. Also thinking of making a heavier 150 load to go along with it too. So many options hard to choose.

That is a nice deer. The velocity on that load is probably perfect for the BT. It is a fairly frangible bullet and I would say that it performs better at your velocity than at real high velocities. Good job.

Re: 280 Rem loads

Glad to see so many people using the .280 Rem. Its been a favorite of mine for more years than I would like to think about.
My go to load for whitetails and feral hogs has been the 150 gr. NBT H4831sc Norma brass and CCIBR2 primers. The rifle shoots theses loads into the .5/.6 on regular basis.
Trued Rem 700
24" Benchmark 1/9 twist
HS Precision Stock
I managed to get my hands on some of the 150 gr. Accubond LR about a month ago and plan on trying some out in the next few weeks to see how they hold up at .280 Rem. velocities.
Took this buck this past week using the above load and was only about a 160 yd. shot. Deer was turned full broadside and took out both lungs. Made it about 30 yds. before taking a nose dive. After looking at all the damage to the lungs and heart I cant believe he made it that far. Shot was a complete pass thru which is not the norm for me while using the ballistic tip.
