Re: 2209 in 280 Ackley

This my short range slow load which seems to be quite accurate. Up to 600 yds 2950 FPS with poor wind reading skills won’t save you and there isn’t a lot of advantages. Except new barrels and retuning again. That’s just my thoughts . But the load in the mag speed photo was literally thrown together ...

Re: 2209 in 280 Ackley

I will also say something that I believe what has transformed this cal in terms of consistency with ignition . Is chamfering the flash holes , helping ignition, in such a long case powder column . Also 2213 sc seems a little temp sensitive and tuning for winter and summer should be considered. But t...

Re: 2209 in 280 Ackley

I just picked up my Saum Bart barrel with Larson tuner fitted and a 25” 2nd hand Maddco Saum barrel for testing and leaning the cal . It usually takes me up to 2 years to learn a caliber. The quickest one to learn was the .284 which was 3 weeks . But trying to find Saum brass which I’ve seen at $6 p...

Re: 2209 in 280 Ackley

Hi Folks, I note that 2209 is used in SAUMs which have similar capacity to the 280 Ackley. Has anyone tried 09 in this case? If so, does anyone have a start point for 2209 with a 180vld in a 280 Ackley? Cheerio Alex Hi Mate , yes 280 ai are similar but not necessarily so ! I use 180 Berger hybrids ...

If it wasn’t for the drone we would not have been able to spot the shots and make corrections. Had to...

Re: 2019 National Teams Match WA

Is it too early to start the playful banter ? A very funny incident, well it was all on me lol! But I had the Nsw Captain and a few WA teams members at the recent Nationals, convince me that because of some fictional tech difficulties. The match was to be moved to some Northern Territory Island . W...

I have 1 too and they are hummer rifles that can get a 180 up to 2950 with now pressure signs Essentially a shortened and overweight 280 ai! With the price of Saum cases (...

Re: king of 2 miles

yet again amidst great fanfare and little substance, we see the best at 2 miles fail to better scores shot by sir henry halford and William metford at similar distances in the 1870/1880 period. 416 barrat vs 50 cal muzzle loader. there is a lot of air and light in between the shooter and a target 2...
