    I acquired a 280 Remington mountain rifle shot very little .

    Its has a 1 in 9 twist barrel 22"

    It's fed thru a mag box

    Have not shot it yet but was thinking 168 hybrid Berger or 180 hybrid
    I think bergers book IMR 4350 43 grains 2647 on the 180 would like to shoot the gun to 700-800 .

    Would the 168 be better for those ranges ?
    Thing is I want to try the hybrids due to they less seating sensitive .

    And ideas or options ?

    Thanks

    the 700 mtn is a very light rifle more suited to carrying than long range shooting . both of mine shoot very good groups though. i would use either 140 or 168 bergers. i would probably have a brake installed .
