280 Remington Ammo
The .280 Remington Ammo has one of the oddest histories. It was first introduced in 1957 and was developed by necking down a .30-06 case. Remington pushed forward a little to ensure they didn’t chamber the 280 Remington Ammo in the wrong rifle. In the end, he was able to create ammo that holds mor powder and fires better ballistic shaped projectiles. In addition, it offered a larger magazine capacity than the 270 Winchester and a flatter trajectory than the 30-06.
The 280 Remington is impressive because of its vast selection of projectiles available for hunting and shooting. The best for varmint hunting is the 110-grain bullets. They’re ideal for hunting foxes. On the other hand, 140 to 150-grain bullets are suitable for any medium-sized game. The 140 – 150-grain bullets can usually travel 3000 fps. However, for target shooting, it is best to go for the 168-grain bullets are ideal. The best for big games and at long range is the 175-grain bullets. The 160-grain options offer a muzzle velocity of 2900 fps.
The .280 Remington Ammo is versatile as you can use it for both medium and large games. When used in moderate ranges, the 140-150 grain loads can produce a broad wound and a deep penetration. However, when the range begins to exceed 250 yards, kills can become slower as well. To use for long ranges, it is best to go for soft 162-grain bullets. They provide violent wounding even when 700 yards away and more. The varying projectiles ensure efficient hunting of different games, from woodchucks to brown bears. It’s also an excellent choice for mule deer, pronghorns, whitetails, elk, and sheep.
