    hi everyone i was wondering if anyone has shot the 140 gr bergers out of their 280 a.i. and at what velocities and powder. i have shot everything from 120 gr ballistic tips to 162 gr amax's out of mine and it will pile all of them up just interested in maybe trying the berger

    I'm shooting 168 bergers out of my 280ai and they shot awesome under .25. My only think that troubles me is that they seem at least at close range, they make big exit holes. I'm going to use 140gr barnes tipped triple shocks. The 140gr bullet looks to be the best weight for the 280ai.
