It is best served in a case which will accommodate pressures if you are worried about vertical at 1000 yards and your tuning knowledge is limited. This is where the SAUM is ideal. Its still fun to see what works and what does not and so others can make informed decisions. Its the old trade-off between the journey and the result.


Hello David ! My Knowledge would be even more limited if it was not for this Forum and such tuning Gurus as yourself! Think in part this maybe why Team Au was so dominant at the worlds . For me it mostly is the journey and learning which I'm always trying to learn. 280 Ai gives an option for .308 bolt face and options for other people out there. Also Thanks David for where you have helped over the years , and I know I'm not the only shooter you have helped !

Well it's a lot of work capturing video and uploading it to Utube so this will be it for a while . A few months ago I started videoing my shoots ( club level and a prize meet ) in order to play back to see what went right or wrong .
So this u tube vid was shot yesterday at My club on the Western Downs Qld . Mt Pleasant rifle range ! Should be called Mt Pain ! Lol! Also wrapping up for now the 280 Ai Blog ( which I so wanted to finish and brought me back to The forum) .
So I hope u enjoy sounds . The vision is an iPhone attached to a spotting scope ( celstron 65 mm) .
Again I hope people will carry on with their findings with 280 Ai .
Yours Faithfully Graham Sells .

Silly question but why not just buy 280 Ai brass and be done with it?

I totally agree and as was stated in the blog , that's what I did . However, sometimes in this country, supply for certain reloading components is near impossible and one has to improvise!

In this case .280 rem brass would suffice!

Lol both are probably equally hard to find in oz. necking up from 25-06 might have been a better option than down from 30-06 as the necks would have naturally grown longer as they were expanded, or perhaps 270 brass as it has a bit longer neck than 30-06 to start with. Was just wondering as I am tossing up building a 280 or 280ai myself.

Big Trav , early days for me , others here on this forum have been campaigning them for years .
I'm very excited about the .280 Ai apart from some teething problems, it has shown some promise . Worth a look ! :wink:

25/06 will not work any better than 30/06. 270 is an option as the brass is longer.
