280 AI Question


Dec 7, 2007
Long time lurker here have a quick question. Im about to pull the trigger on a 280 and cant decide whether I should go the AI route or not. The only thing Im worried about is feeding. Do any of you run repeaters in 280 AI, does it work? Im planning on running a savage centerfeed to be more specific. Thanks for any input.

This is certainly a valid question when going to a minimum taper case, I have 3 Ackley improved rifles. 2 are Remington 700s and one is a Ruger. None have had to be altered to help with feeding. All feed quite well, and none have had a problem.

I don't have a Savage, however, I think that there wouldn't be any problem with their feeding either.
