Re: Looking for 280Rem data
My Remington 700 CDL will shoot three shots into about .5 inches when it is fed 140 Accubonds,57.0 grains of RL-19, in RP cases,and WLR primers with a COL of 3.350. I have found that seating depth is not the major determining factor in this gun, with this load. However, when I shot Hornadys Super performance ammo I was able to change the seating depth and improve the accuracy(This load produced 3065 ft/sec). It will also shoot other loads and bullets into less than and inch.. I loaded this gun with 140 Nosler BT and the same amount of RL-19 and it shot about the same .5 inch three shot groups. The 140 Accubonds produced 2974 ft/sec using my chronograph at 10 ft from the muzzle.
I just put a new scope on the gun. I had a Burrins Fuilfield II 3X9 X40 which was a good scope for the money but not quite up to what I wanted to do with the rifle, so I bought a Sightron II Big Sky 3X9X 44m and mounted it. This is a great scope, and the 3X9 in enough power, because I do not plan on taking shoots longer that 500 yards.
I have done two things with this gun. It has been glass bedded and the trigger pull has been reduced to 3 lbs.l
