    What Red Dot??

    Check out the Riton made here. For a $100 it's impressive. I've got Holosun, Burris, Vortex, and Sig. The Riton seems to outperform the others but don't know about longevity.

    No Longer Needed

    You cannot ship in that Ruger box only. No suggestion that there is a firearm inside is permitted. However you can ship in the Ruger box and then put that in another box. If you have a scope on your rifle it's best to remove it and bubble pack in another box. If you have to leave it on the rifle then you may want to buy a Plano SE scoped rifle case from Midway. They're about $40 and come in a cardboard box that you can use for shipping. Well worth the protection. UPS and Fed-Ex has recently changed their requirements. Check before you ship.

    Colt Refinishing

    Turnbull is the best if it involves an absolutely authentic restoration!

    Scope mounts

    Regardless of what scope mounting system you buy, get your scope mounted correctly! Even the most expensive scope rings need to be lapped and fitted and scope bases need to bedded for proper fit!

    Remington model 720

    What caliber and was that butt pad added and stock cut? Also 20 or 22 inch barrel? Also is original rear sight present? Depending on answers worth about $400-$600.

    Berger 7 mm 180g vld

    There will be plenty left at the post office when he ships in that flimsy flat rate box, LOL!!!
  12. Weaver or Burris. Be sure to lap them.
  13. A 9 twist better on brass? I've been shooting the 280A! since 1990. Always shot 165-170 weight bullets with 8 or 8.5 twist. Todays bullets are even longer and require 8-9 twist with 9 twist on the marginal side for best accuracy. I'm helping a friend put one together right and it'll be an 8 twist Brux on a Kelbly Atlas action. My advice to him was to buy Lapua 30/06 brass and neck down.
  14. Why build a 280AI when you have a 7/08 shooting like that. 👍!
  15. Before you do anymore testing measure head diameter and check for expansion. Anymore than .0008" over new brass is too hot. If you're under that measurement then you should be able to go up in .5 grain increments till you see that head expansion over .0008". What you think is .005" off the lands may be well into the lands. I wouldn't trust that measurement. If you're into the lands, that could drive pressure significantly. By the way did Phoenix Rifles make a barrel stub for you for measuring headspace and seating depth. Also did they give you a blueprint of the reamer specs they used on your rifle. It may not be too late to ask for this.
