Can someone please run Quickload data for a couple of 280AI combinations. Given component shortages trying to work up a couple of new loads given what i've been able to get my hands on.

24" barrel
Nosler Brass, water capacity = 74.6gr
Fed 210
RL23
168g Berger Hunting VLD
COAL = 3.481"

If your combo is gonna be anything like ive had with the 280AI, in the neighborhood of 60.0 will be max with a 215 primer, RL23 and 168.
You should be right at 3,000FPS.

What barrel length you running LSherm? Did you land on 60.0g as your final load with an accuracy node here or was your accuracy node elsewhere.

Seen a lot of guys recipes in the 58.5g - 59.0g as their final load with velocities of 2900-3000 depending upon rifle specifics. I am surprised at the low velocity predictions from QL (2749fps @ 58.6g & 2776fps @ 59.2g) with the 168g Berger Hunting VLD as this is much lower than what i've seen most people posting. I've got a good starting spot though and will work up at varying charges and watch closely for pressure signs starting @ 57.5g - 62.5g in 0.5g increments.
