I currently have a sweet shooting 280. I have been kicking around the idea of going to the 280AI.
Would you? Is it worth it? Im thinking I would only gain around 100fps to 150fps.
Whats your thoughts?
I have a 280 AI and am very impressed with it. Oh, and for what its worth, 150 fps MORE with a 168 gr bullet is a huge difference, esp at longer ranges. Its worth the upgrade. My 280 AI pushes a 168 gr LRAB at 2950 and shoots quarter inch groups at 100 yards. The perfect mountain rifle caliber IMHO.
IM currently shooting 140 accubonds at 3095 and getting just over 1/4" groups. Love the gun. Just always wanted the 280 AI but I am afraid of screwing up a great rifle.
Just curious if going the Ackley would be worth it.
I load 59 grains of H4831sc under the 168 gr LRABs, not water. The chrony says 2950 fps, not me.
