Re: new from Church Point, La

Very nice rifle trebark! Mine will look very similar.

My plan for the .280 AI is to to shoot the 140 Bergers & possibly the 168's if I ever head West with it to get that mule deer that haunts my dreams. Our little marsh deer rarely get to 200 lbs. on the hoof, been wreaking havoc on them for years with 100~115 grains through my .25-06... The 140's should clean house just fine.

    The 140's will certainly kill those deer and ballistically perform well to 500 yards. When your itch gets to shooting farther,check out the ballistics of the 168 going 2800. You can kill deer with that bullet at 1k.

    As an FYI, be sure to get a 1:9 twist barrel. With that you will be able to stabilize the 180VLD if you want.

    it's gonna be a 1:9... and if the 168's prove to be a more stable round than the 140's then that'll be my go to round.

    Can't wait to figure it all out!
