    280 Ack now done!!

    Well guys and girls ,
    A good friend and rifle builder sent me a picture of my 280 Ackley he has now finished

    Its a Sako 75 long action , UKgunworks recoil lug , Border cut barrel - finished at 27 inches , Mcmillan Sako varmint stock , Ase sound moderator.
    I plan to run the 162 A-maxs , roll on the end of this month as i am traveling up country with the Mrs to pick the rifle up and hopefully work up a good load for her
    Shall report when i get back home after trip
    All the best ,
    Ray.

    As for case capacity , i will be using Nosler custom 280 Ack brass!!
    Untill i get the rifle and start load development this is just a guestimation , around 60 grains of Reloader 22!!
    But we shall see by the end of the month
