Re: 280 ai

boog, if this is your rifle, it's very nice. I have a 280 very similair to it, you're going to like hunting with it. Please post your shooting results. I have just been trying the Berger 168 VLD's in my rifle and they shoot very well. I plan on developing this load a bit more. Before, I was using IMR 4350 and 150 BT.

Good luck!

It is his rifle. The test firing was done with the factory Nosler Custom 140gr accubond. After the first shot I dialed the scope down 6in. The first shot brought down to the others was right there on the second and third. Don't how they are loaded but seems to be some pretty good store bought ammo. Dan
