    Lets get it started

    Mine has said that for the last couple of years, but I've drawn several tags.

    Activists in the draw

    Years ago, I heard they did this for the sandhill crane tags.

    electronic target camera

    Took a picture of my tablet screen at the 1000 yard practice Saturday morning for those that might be interested in what data it gives you. This was with my .308 Win Palma rifle (iron sights and sling).

    I want a 280ai

    Pretty much in the custom barrel camp myself these days. Amazing how much easier it makes reloading!

    I want a 280ai

    Check to see if the mag box is binding when the action screws are tight... it should have some wiggle room between the reciever and bottom of stock well.

    electronic target camera

    No experience with cameras, but the acoustic electronic targets are great fun for practice. I have a Silver Mountain Solo I use all the time for Palma and 1000 yard practice at Ben Avery. Others on the line have Shotmarkers and the Silver Mountain G2s which appear to be the most foolproof. They also provide velocity data/statistics for bullet speed through target face.

    280 ai dies

    Lots of ways to skin the cat and a lot will depend on the chamber of the rifle you are loading for, and what your accuracy goals are. If you need to size the fired neck down more than .005" , a bushing die can actually create run-out unless you size down in steps with two bushings. If you want to turn necks you will need a conventional FL die for that first sizing before turning. The competition shell holder set is nice, not really needed to control shoulder bump. Wilson straightline seaters are great, but slow, depending on how many rounds you need to load at a time. I typically split the difference and use Redding or Forster competition seaters for rifles where I feel I need minimum runout. Sinclair expander mandrels are good if you want to take the expander ball out of your die, but don't turn necks. A Lee Collet die and a Forster bushing shoulder bump die used without the bushing is a good combo that doen't require any case lube and is capable of loading very straight ammo.

    Model 700 question

    If you want to keep the factory trigger, I would do as 10turkeys suggests and flush it well with lighter fluid and blow dry with compressed air. The lighter fluid leaves a light kerosene residue that acts as a lubricant. Might be the cheap fix...
