I have 280 Rem Berger data that could get you started. What powders do you plan to use?

Re: Berger load data

You can use any data for jacketed lead core bullets of the same weight and caliber to find starting loads. You'll have to determine maximum loads yourself but you would have to do that even with Berger specific data.

Re: Berger load data

Same here for my 280, email Berger and the will send you all their load data for the 280AI. I did play around with the 168 VLD's in my 280, but could never get them to shoot that well. I gave up for now, as I have several other rifles that shoot with out working up loads. I do plan to try again. For now I use a 150 Nosler BT with IMR 4350. It shoots well.

Not to hijack the thread try IMR-7828 with bullets from 160 and up you might just be suprised.
