280 Ackley

  • Just a nice hunting rifle build on a Remington 700 receiver and Manner's EH2


  • That is exactly what I was thinking about doing with my Birch stocked Remington Sportsman 270.

    True up the Action, good barrel and convert to 280 Ackley in a nice ADL type stock, Timney Trigger.
    Heavy profile but fluted to drop weight a bit and keep as much stiffness as possible.
    What length? 26"-28" Bean field gun. 1800+ foot pounds at 500 yards for hogs.
    2800 fps with a 180 grain would be the goal.
    There are some big bean fields to the South of me.
    I have my 30-30 for the woods.
