Re: 280 Rem loads

Nice whitetail! Our loads are similar. I've never ever had a btip not pass through. I've recovered about 4 accubonds now though. Odd considering the 2 different designs.

Excellent results with your 280 Rem and the 150 NBT. I am shooting a 280 Rem out of a Remington CDL loaded with 140 Accubonds and 54.5 grains of RL-17 that produces a velocity of 2975+ ft/sec. It is interesting to look at the experiences of different people with differfent loads. I have been hunting deer in Nebraska for a number of years and my results are some what different from yours.

First I have seen 15 or more deer shot with Nosler Accubond and we have yet to recover a single Accubond. Just this year my hunting friends and I shot 7 deer with Accubonds and all were complete pass throughs. The Accubonds were shot out of 3 different calibers(130 grains-270 Win, 130 grain-260 Rem, and 140 grains- 280 Rem..


Second I have seen the Nosler BT blow up on more that one deer. The latest happened to my hunting friend in Nebraska while shooting his 270 Winchester using 130 grain Silver BT's(Same as the Nosler BT). After taking a couple of deer at 200 yards+ with very good results, he shot a doe at 20-40 yards and the bullet blew up on a rib before entering the deer. How do I know this? We did recover the deer after it traveled 300-400 yards. The bones from the rib took one lung out and the deer died. As a result of this I started loading him 130 Accubond and so far the results have been excellent.

My thoughts are this after using and seeing the BT used on deer. If you are shooting at 200 yards are more the BT work great. If you velocity is around 2700 ft/sec again the BT will work great. However, if you have a close shot and your velocity is 2900-3000 ft/sec. you may experience a blow up if you happen to hit a bone. This is based on the result that I have either experienced or have seen during my 30 plus years of deer hunting.


I thing your result are great because you have shot deer at longer range with a heavier bullet and your velocity if 2750 ft/sec.

Congratulations on your success!

Re: 280 Rem loads

The one on top is my older CDL with a leupy.

The one on bottom is the newer stainless fluted one that had to come out after the standard CDL model, so of coarse I have to get that one two. Same thing happened when I bought my 300 ultra, the model that I actually had my heart set on came out after I bought the first one. The stainless fluted 280 is now currently wearing the Swarovski 3-10x42 that my first 300 ultra had on it. I figure that the 3-10 would wear better on the 280 than the 300 so now the 300 needs a new scope. I am going to try the 140 ttsx and maybe some 150 sciroccos for it too.

Thats two really nice looking rifles. I really like the looks of the stainless fluted one.
Let us know how the ttsx 140 and the 150 Sciroccos work out for you.

Re: 280 Rem loads

Well that's the whole reason I have two, is because I really like the stainless fluted one too and had to have it but not going to get rid of the standard CDL. As of now I have everything for the ttsx to go but need to get the scirocco 150's yet. That will be later though. Now just time to be able to sit and roll some. I am pretty happy with the CDL loads shooting the NAB 140's I front of H-4831sc and 210 primers. I had several loads under moa with that combination.

Re: 280 Rem loads

Shortmagman, thanks for the kind words. In fact, I have never juiced up the Btips in any rifle and they have performed flawlessly in multiple rifles with various calibers.
