This is the first load in any caliber that I have used RL 22 in. No experience at all with it. Thanks to all the replies and the experience shared, I have relaxed and am quite comfortable with this load, which is 56 gr with a 150 Smkhp and 250 BR-2 primer. Some loads just seem to sound and feel good when you shoot them. This is one of them. I will go ahead and chronograph a session with this load now.
It is my first 280. Oh yeah, it only has iron sights.
The first guy that asked me what I thought about the .280, I asked him if you neck a 30-06 down to 7mm, how bad could it be?
Again, thanks to all, Tom
