    I have a Remington 280 AI that was barreled by Kenny Jarrett. I am trying 140 grain Accubonds and cannot come up with a load that seems to be the ''cat's meow''. Any help on your pet loads would be appreciated.

    I shoot the standard 280 with 140's and 57 grains of H-4831 although it is not the AI version H-4831 or RL-22 should work well for you pick a mid range load with either powder for the standard 280 and work up and you shouil be able to find something good with a bit of effort.

    For my rifle 63.5 gr of VV 165 with a CCI BR2 primer and 140 Accubond works very well. Average of .5" for 6-3 shot groups

    I have a super accurate load for the .280AI--60g IMR4831, Fed210 primers, WW nickel brass and the 140g Accubond. This load has shot into a .068 hole for three shots.

    Thanks guys for the recipes for the 280 AI, I really appreciate it. I have been shooting Rem. fireformed brass but just order Nosler 280 AI brass. Gonna give it a try as well.
