Default Reloader Needed (.280)

Does anyone reload or can anyone recommend a reloader that may be able to build me some .280 Rem rounds? You'd have better luck finding a diamond walking down the street then to find some quality rounds for a .280 Rem caliber. Don't get me wrong the core-lokt serves it's purpose but it's not my cup o tea unless I'm hammering down on pigs. I had previously been shooting Noslers 140 grain Accubond Trophy Grade and I was liking what I was seeing out of it. But, you can't find these or anything else other than core-lokts so I'm going to explore the reloading route and see what I can drag up.

I'm guessing you mean 280 Remington? What components do you have on hand?

For ammo? Yes, hours upon hours. Lots of scammers and lots of "out of stock"

For reloaders, no. Never been down the road of reloading so I was seeking advice from the people with more wisdom.

Sometimes, having something is better than having nothing.

I agree, I can get corelokts all day long. But there's a high possibility that there is someone out there that can reload rounds orrrrrrrrr maybe even have some sitting in a closet!

I shoot 280 Rem

I hand load for all my rifles.

Just like ammo, components (bullets, brass, primers, etc) have been really hard to find as well. When you do find them you better have big boy checkbook ready.

There are several companies that will build custom loads to your speds. I can't remember all the names but there are a few. Again, these will be pricey.

Shoot me a PM if you like. I can help you get started if your interested.

Your not to far from me but I don’t reload for the 280, if you want to pony up the cash to buy the goods I can probably find time to work up a load. Finding the components is pretty easy, paying for them is another thing entirely though.

Unfortunately you legally must have a license to reload other people if you charge them. It’s not worth the trouble or liability if you don’t do it as a business.

Ah, well I've reached out to a couple of these people running a business so hopefully I'll have something in the works soon. I mainly bow hunt (90%) of the time but I want to stow away some rifle rounds just in case.

This is true, thatís why you donít charge anyone for helping. If you do charge though your asking for problems from an alphabet group.
