    Howdy all,
    Would anyone happen to have a berger loading manual and know if they list any loads for 280AI in it.
    Thank you for your time.

    If you are using 168 Bergers, 59g Re22 works well...work up to that as it is NOT a mild load.

    Consider buying the Nosler Reloading manual. They have had 280 AI data for some time. The Berger manual is incredibly conservative and more or less worthless to the competitive shooter (or any other shooter).
    Nosler has data online for some cartridges.

    280 AI is also in QuickLoad - Shoot me what powders and bullets you want to use and I can whip something up for you.

    RL 23 works well in 140 - 160 class bullets
