.280 hand load recipes

Postby PrairieShadow » Thu Aug 28, 2008 6:24 am

Does anyone have some good .280 hand load recipes that they would be willing to share with me. I have a custom built .280 on a mauser action for probably 5-6yrs now and have yet to work up a handload for it.
 
What does everyone have for me?

I've never loaded the .280 but I checked Google and found a wealth of data. In their search window, type in .280 remington reloading data. The information there is by powder manufacturer.

PrairieShadow,
I also shoot a 280 Rem. Best load I have found yet is 53.3gr of IMR 4350 behind a 139gr Hornady Interlock. Consistent sub moa groups, and plenty of power.

First off Welcome!! There is a wealth of knowledge here and some that will make you look at a situation in a different light.
 
Thanks for the recipe. I will give it a whirl.
Hunting isn't a matter of Life or Death
Its MUCH more important than that!
