Just traded a stock set that I made for a .280 barrel for a H & R break-action, and am wondering how many of you reload for the .280 Rem/7MM Express? I'd imagine that it will like the same powders as the others in calibers in the 06 cartridge family, IMR 4895, IMR 4350, H 414, RX 19, RX 22. I'd like to know what's the favored weight bullet for this round. My first thought is to try 150gr boattails, as my favorite load for my .270 is a 140 gr bullet and for the .30-06, my son and I like the 165 gr SSTs. Opinions please? Here's the stock set I traded.. with no finish, just a good rubdown with the 320 grit. :) I would also be interested in a set of .280 AI dies! :)

To save time, IMR4350 is the powder. Most friends use 140's with the 139 Hornady being very popular.
Sure saves alot of time, as IMR 4350 can be used in most bottlenecked rifle brass, I have loads for my .243 Win up to my .338 Win Mag using IMR 4350. :lol:
