Re: Remington Mtn Rifle in .280 Caliber
The 280 remington started out as the 7mm express. Name was changed to 280 to avoid mixing it up with the 7mm remington magnum. It is a very good cartridge in its own right. I wish I had never sold mine to a friend. It does not give up that much to the 7mm remington mag ( my favorite) and is much easier on the shoulder.
With a good 160 grain bullet and handloads it will do anything you would ever need it to do. Reloading is a great hobby and you can probably get started for what it would have cost to trade for a 7 mag.
