I had a .280 Rem. built back in 1990 and have hunted with only it since then. I shoot 140 gr. barnes x bullets out of it, and have killed 4 black bears, 4 or 5 pronghorns I don't know how many deer, and 31 elk with it. If anyone knows where a guy can get (.284) 140 gr. barnes x bullets let me know. (down to my last 75 or 80)
I did have a 300 wsm
built this year and it will become my new elk rifle, but I will still hunt everything else with my .280.
