    Would anyone know of a manufacturer that would load for 280AI with a lead free bullet such as a barnes TSX - TTSX, Nosler E tip or Hornady GMX.

    Checked the Nosler web site as I knew they sold factory ammo for the 280AI but they do not show it for their E-Tip.

    I have been chosen for a special herd reduction shoot but must shoot lead free ammo and everything I've got is set up for other bullets. I'm guessing max range in the 300 yd area will be the norm.

    Hate to go through the reloading, testing on the bench etc. for a couple day shoot but if that is what it takes I guess I'll start the process. I can't remember the last time I shot factory ammo so this would be a first for me.

    Thanks guys - I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree when it comes to factory ammo.

    With my work schedule between now and fall I think I'll try one of the above.
    Thanks again.
