Great post and nice job. Details on the 280 you're using?
Thanks for all the kind words gentlemen.
Rifle is a pre-64 action with a Llija barrel, in a slightly heavier than featherweight contour finished at 23”. Barreled action is mated to a LAW/High Tech Specialties stock, blind magazine configuration. The barreled action has been Black-T coated to add some weather resistance. Rifle sans optics weighs 6lbs, 3ozs and balances beautifully.
Shoots 160 ABs in front of IMR 7828ssc around 2850ish.
The rifle was willed to me by my shooting/reloading mentor with a beautiful piece of walnut I still have on hand. It’s a wonderful and functional piece of my old friend that I cherish deeply.
I really, really hope he was looking down from heaven on all the exploits I took his old rifle on this season.
