    Welcome to Long Range Hunting.

    You can go here and then scroll down and get a little info on the 280AI. Link--> Read only data for load reference links posted on LRH

    The search feature will get you even more info. Good luck with your new barrel and the new caliber.

    Dick, I see you are shooting the 7mm AM! tell me about it. bullet make / weight you like and velocity and accuracy you ar getting.

    I talked to Kirby Allen about doing my rebarrel job and he wasnt too excited about it being a Mod. 70 action.

    thanks.

    P.S. what size is the bolt face on that 7mm AM?

    Hov.

    7mmAM: 200 grain Wildcat ULDRBBT at up to 3400 fps. Accuracy is super and it holds it even at long range. 100 yards is typically a ragged hole, 300 is typically under 1" etc. etc.

    The round is based on the 338 Lapua case which Kirby has improved. Some are concerned about using smaller standard actions like the 70 or 700. My action is a Nesika M w/.590 bolt face.
