Rem 280

I looking for some info. I'm making a 280 on a newer Remington action. I want to keep it as light as possible (The barrel ,action and stock to 6 lbs or under) I know I can do this. My question is what would be a good twist for the barrel and what bullets would work well with the twist. I don't mind heavier bullets.
Please help I need some info. Thanks!

    I would use a # 4 lilja contour with a 1 in 9 twist 24 to 26" long (No break or flutes).

    The 140 and 160gr Accubonds are the most popular and perform well at 800 to 1000yrds

    This is a very popular round in west texas where shots tend to be long and everyone
    who ownes the 280 have nothing but praise for it.

    Good choice !!!

    Thank you for the info. What kind of stock would you use? What scope would work with this barrel.
