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 !!!
