I posted it last night in the hammer hunter spreadsheet thread. I have yet to shoot it for groups because I just got the rifle and only done a pressure test so far but I’ll be shooting for groups this weekend. I had it up to 3267 (88.5gr of retumbo) but that load showed decent pressure, more than I’d like so I’ll back off to 3225 which should be ideal assuming it groups which I think/hope it will.

Years ago I had a Mauser Mark X action barreled with a Douglas # 1 barrel in 280 Rem. It ended up with a Browns Precision stock. I just had it modified to 280 AI... Lots of water has gone under the bridge, but to start all over, I'd go with a .280 AI... Life is like a circle... you usually end up about where you started. DD62
If I had no big game rifles/was starting over it would imply something bad happened to my old ones. There are cartridges I don’t currently have rifles chambered in that I’d like to but first order of business would be replacing my primary 3 chamberings:
.300 win mag. I don’t foresee these ever being dethroned for me.
