Mountain ss
« on: April 09, 2014, 07:25:23 AM »
My search is over , I just received my Model 700 Mountain ss in 280 Remington .Also purchased a Leupold VXI 2x7 for a scope , now waiting for the rings and bases. Hopefully I will develope a handload by the end of summer. Interestingly has a 9.25 twist rate . This will be my deer rifle and love the feel of this rifle . Any recomendations for a 140gr handload ?
