    M48 in 280AI

    Have long admired Nosler rifles. Recently pick up a couple. I didn't realize that the M48 in 280AI came in both magnum and sporter barrels. I had only seen magnum. Was surprised today coming across one in sporter contour. About 1/2 lb lighter.

    Another 338

    Had one and passed it along a few years ago. Mine shot well, I ended up using 200gr AB and removing the tips for a FP. If you need some brass, I have some once fired. Send me a PM

    280 AI brass

    Funny thing. Was cleaning the man cave today and found a large bag of Rem 7mm Exp brass that was already fire formed for 280AI. Must have come with a previous rifle.

    280 AI brass

    Switched 280 AI rifles and mistakenly gave all my 280 AI brass with the rifle I sold. Seems Nosler 280AI brass is hit or miss in quality. Seems other brands are hard to find. I am going to fire form some R-P brass to get started. Wondering about getting some Lapua brass and forming 280AI...

    Which Rifle

    Lots of clover choices. Seems like the 6.5 creed or PRC seems to be what os selling new and used these days. Was in a Cabela's store last week and Looked about Browning X-bolts. 3/4 of the rifles were a 6.5 caliber

    338-08 or light loads in 338WM?

    Thanks for all the food for thought. I already have a couple 338Feds and have been very successful with the 185gr TSX. Recently stumbled into a Thomson Encore in 330-06AI. Have played with that some and still deciding where it fits in the safe. The 20 inch 338WM......agree that the...

    338-08 or light loads in 338WM?

    I have all the bases cover with 338WM, couple Whelens, etc. Was thinking if loading down a 338Wn would have less potential for accuracy, then a regular load in a 338-08 (ie 338 Fed - got those too) ? Probably over thinking it, just find one in nice shape and go from there

    338-08 or light loads in 338WM?

    I have a hunger for a Sako Mannlicher in a larger bore. Handled one a few years ago in 338 WM and is was a sweat little package. Spent too much time thinking it over and when I came back the next week, it was gone. Causally shopping for one. I would image the recoil of full load 33WM with a...

    New to me - 338-06 AI

    little range time to determine the right, then chrono it. It is an TC Encore so the barrel is long (26 inches) compared to the length of the overall rifle, thus should gain a little speed.

    New to me - 338-06 AI

    Worked into a deal and ended up with a Thompson Encore barrel in 338-06 AI. Came with fire formed brass and dies and a few hand loads. Looked around here and found load data. Just finished making some 210 PT with RL-15. Will have to wait until next weekend for range time, but the 338-06AI...

    What to do with a Tikka 695 in 280 Rem?

    JES already did a Tikka T3 into a 35 Whelen for me. Turned out right nice and shoots great too Might just have to shoot regular old 280 with 160 PT and see how she does.

    What to do with a Tikka 695 in 280 Rem?

    Pulled out of the back of a safe, a Tikka 695 in 280 Rem. Has been there for a while, when I purchased it, it certainly looked new and I have not fired it. Trying to think, if there is something to make? Already have 338Fed, 338 WM and 35 Whelen covered. Either leave as a 280 (already have...

    SAKO A III ?

    Guy. I too was looking at a Sako AV rifle this week. The guy selling this bought it new and it has spent all it's life in the safe. I held it, like it, but I already have the same rifle in 280AI thus didn't buy it. But still Keep pondering it

    New to me - 1983 Rem 700 Mountain in 280 Rem

    Walked into the shop and asked to look it over. Mentioned that I liked the 280. They guy said "you must be from up in north?". Eventually southern Oregon coast people don't like the 280. Was glad to relocate it to 280 caliber friendly area. Yep - mounted a 2.5-8 and she is might fine. One...
