    His barrel is chambered in 7mm rem mag isnt it?

    Probably not a feasible option to change that barrel to 280

    If you wanted a 7 rem mag you would have to get your bolt face opened up ($$) possible mag modifications (maybe not, but need have feeding issues etc) and then barrel screwed in and headspaced etc

    Would be easier to find a 7mm08 barrel and get it reamed to 280 mate

    Some interesting discussion on this forum

    The Firing Line Forums
    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.
