280 ai

Built this on for a customer on Arizona. Would not mind just keeping it for myself.

Stiller Action
Brux #5 barrel fluted finished at 26 inches 9 twist

Rings and scope are mine for test firing. Shot 3 times so far 2 in the same hole 1 a 1/4 inch off. Using nosler custom ammo with the 160 partition for break in and testing.

    The nosler factory loads were not very good. Ordered me a set of dies and loaded some 168 Bergers. Shot very good at 100yd test. Plan on trying them out to 500 soon. The load was H4831 sc, Fed 210m Nosler brass, 168 Bergers set at .002 off the lands. Dan

    Gun shot as well at 500 as it did at 100. Mirage was really bad. I was really surprised to get that good of results under those conditions. Maybe I just got lucky today. Dan
