Well, Remington chose the 280 over the 7mm Express. That oughta count for something....I mean nothing.

The 280 Remington is overbore.

The 7 Rem Mag is over bore.

Muledeer: I have owned and successfully Hunted with both "calibers/cartridges" in question here.
I specifically remember the reason the fine folks at Big Green "changed" the caliber designation of the 7mm Remington Express back to 280 Remington - and that reason being folks (both buyers/users and sellers) got the 7mm Remington Express "cornfused" with the 7mm Remington Magnum!
The 280 Remington (7mm Remington Express) is one of the finest of Remingtons proprietary cartridges and no matter what it is called this cartridge works wonders on game up to and including Elk, IME!

Found a 700 BDL Custom Deluxe marked 7MM EXP. REM. today and brought it home. I think it means 7mm Experimental - never had one before. Its a pre-'81 D&T'd for receiver sight. Wonder what twist?

I just checked my tried and true 7600 and it is stamped '280 Remington'. It loves Hornady 139 BTSP's over IMR-4350.

My #1 says 7mm Express but can morph into a 280 at will..even the headstamps are interchangeable who woulda ever thunk it!...a 270 can't do dat!! whistle

What's a 270? Is that like a 9x30 or something?

So do I!

I'd think twice about using it on an international hunt, where you have to go thru customs, tho- explaining that barrel marking and .280 headstamps on your ammo may be too much for a customtard to comprehend.


I'd rather be a free man in my grave, than living as a puppet or a slave....
