I'm thinking of having a rifle built. It will not be a heavy bench rest style rifle, but a much more coventional rifle for stalking/hunting of whitetails. Weight is a consideration, and so is recoil in a light rifle. I'm thinking non-magnum cartridges, and it seems as though the .280 Ackley Improved is a pretty fair non-magnum 7mm. Does anyone out there have any experience with this cartridge?
