Ssg 280 ai

I just picked up my new 280 AI from Nate a few weeks ago. I've only shot 8 rounds to break in the barrel. Hopefully, it warms up soon so I can get some brass fire formed and some loads worked up.

Buid Specs:
Rem LA Trued
PTG bolt
Brux #4 9 twist @ 26 inches
Holland lug pinned
HS Stock
HS bottom metal
Shilen trigger
Talley Rings
Leupold VX3 4.5-14x50 w/ M1 turrets

Re: Ssg 280 ai

I just had a very similar spec'd 280 AI built, with almost the exact same scope too. Mine has a 26" straight fluted Bartlein barrel and even though its a lite hunting rifle, its shooting 1/4" groups at 100 yards with the 168 gr LRABs over 59 gr of H4831. Can't wait to get it out for some long range validation as soon as this snow melts off.

What kind of speed are you getting? I plan on starting with H4831 and 162 Amaxes for deer and 168 Bergers for my Wyoming elk hunt next Oct.

Yes, Nate does a good job and he's a great guy. He built me a 300 Jazz last year and is working on a 6x47 Lapua now.
