    Does anyone have any load data for 280AI 180g Berger Hybrid and RL26?
    If not, what are your go to powders for this cartridge and bullet combo?

    I’ve had great results with H4831. I shoot the 168gr vld in mine.

    Two nodes for me at 57 then again at 61-62. Different bullets but similar bearing surfaces...? I think the 180 gr fits better in 7mm territory.

    I used H4831sc for 140s, the recoil of the rifle using re26 was not worth it. I shoot 140 accubonds at 3200fps.

    I did a ton of testing 4831sc vs r26 same grains with same bullet never noticed that. Will have to compare felt recoil next time. I have about two pounds of fairy dust still so will be awhile for my fall back to 4831... Nothing is going to argue with 140 ab's at 3200:)
