    I have a custom 280 AI w/ 25" barrel. I played around a little bit with the 168 gr. Bergers last fall. Basically just developed an accurate load and shot a few deer with them. Has anybody shot these Bergers out of a 280 AI? If so, how fast were you pushing them? I was shooting approx. 2750 fps, with the starter load this fall and would like to kick that up some. Just wondering if anyone else has any experience with this caliber and bullet.
    Thanks for the help.

    I'm shooting the 160 gr AB with 60.0 grs RL22 in a Nosler case and Federal GM215M primer.
    Accuracy is stellar.

    Thanks for the response JD. Have you played with Bergers at all through your Ackley?
