i ai lots of calibers.brass is big saver.my project now is a 338 lapua mag. ai
Tho’ I hesitated to say it before, simply the appearance of the AIed cartridge is appealing to my eye. Whether the velocity increase is significant or not, it’s worth it to be “just a little different”I built one because I loved the 6mm and AI’ing it made it just look sexy. The other advantages have been stated, less trimming and some velocity.
i am a novice in the world or reloading, just wanted to get that out there. I see alot of different AI rounds from 260, 25-06, 280 but I guess my question just sticking with the 280, what does a 280AI bring to table vs just getting a 7mm rem mag. I mean I get it, it’s not too hard to fire form the brass, but just asking if it’s worth that
To add to this I would also either get an action that allows a Wyatt’s box or have a gunsmith cut it for a Wyatt’s box. Having 3.825 coal is real nice when shooting the heavies so as to not take away so much powder space.You can, but it's more involved than that. The Nosler magnums are based off a shortened RUM (parent case is .404 Jeffery) case. Therefore, it would be best to start with a long action RUM factory chambered rifle, and build from there. Using a standard and standard magnum receiver, you will need to have the feed rails opened up on the bottom of the receiver, ditch the bottom metal, follower, and mag box for a RUM setup, and you will need have the bolt face opened up. Much easier to just start with a 7mm or .300 RUM rifle, strip it down, and build from there.
Remington 700 Magnum Long Action Receiver Assembly RUM Feed Ramp Stainless Steel $343Can you not make the 06 which is a standard length action into a 28nosler, just have to open bolt face up a lil? And you get a lot more zoom lol. I am not arguing I am really just debating for my knowledge benefit.
Be very careful. It's more addictive than tobacco, morphine, and women... OK I made that up. You're gonna love it! Here's my loads in a 32" Bartlien gainer (1:9.5 to 1:8):i ai lots of calibers.brass is big saver.my project now is a 338 lapua mag. ai
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
