57.5gr H4831SC with a 175grSMK and Wolf LRM primer shot well for me. 61gr of H1000 with same bullet and primer do well also. All loads use LC Match .30-06 brass.

Getting good accuracy with 56.4gr H4350 and Nosler 120gr Ballistic Tip. Max is 58. Load development still in progress. Next will be trying to match the HDY 139 SST Custom factory load which is a beauty.

Thanks for the info, I will try these loads. I too am interested in matching that factory HDY load, it looks and sounds like a good one.

Re: .280 REMINGTON RELOADING

What's the twist rate? Here's two loads that shot well for my rifle this weekend.

120 Sierra Spitzer SP
0.020" jump
49.6gr BLC-2
Fed Primer, Fed brass unprepped
After zeroing, 6 rounds could be covered by a dime.

180 Berger XDR Hybrid
0.015" Jump
56.0gr RL22 (this is a hot load, work up to it)
Fed brass, fed primer.
3 rounds covered by a nickel at 100y, but the light shines at longer distances: 3 rounds covered by a quarter at 300yd.

I have not had much time (I just finished the rifle on Saturday at midnight) so I will be testing the loads further to dial them in some more.

Barrel is a 28" Shilen 1:9" twist

Actual chamber is a 7mm-270, but for ballistics/loading purposes it's a 280 Rem.

Update:

162 Amax
10 thou off lands
Wolf LR mag primer
52.5gr H4831sc

Shot very well.
