Optics on this rifle have recently been upgraded to a Leupold VX3 4.5-14x14 that the Leupold Custom Shop added a TMR reticle and M1 turrets. The scope came off My 280 - Updated!
Also, this rifle shoots the Hornady Custom factory ammo with the 130grain SSTs very well, the bullet recently failed to kill a deer. This is a known flaw in tipped bullets in that they sometimes blow up on the hide of the animal and deer just gets up and walks away. Although I'd heard of this I had never actually seen it until my nephew shot a deer at 335 yards. We watched the deer hit the ground. When we went to get the deer...it was gone! it just got up and walked away.
As a result of this experience, I've been reloading 130grain Sierra Game Kings with 59grains of H4831SC which sends them at 2900+ with good ES and .5moa accuracy. This will be the new hunting load and hopefully no deer will walk away from a well placed shot.
