    .280 Remington (Ackley) reloading gear?

    Appreciate this is a very long shot, but does anyone have any .280 AI dies?
    Prefer RCBS,Forster, Redding.
    Also need a case trimmer and some brass?
    I suspect I will have to buy new!

    Hello. Norman Clarke possibly still has standard 280 Remington brass, new, by Remington. It is where I got my brass from for that calibre. As to 280 AI be aware, as I think you know, that the Nosler 280 AI brass has some sort of "issue" vis-a-vis matching Ackley's original specification. In that there are headspace problems using the one in the other.

    Dies probably best sourced rom eBay...even with the increased postal charges they seem cheap...but Norman Clarke may indeed have some in that calire. RCBS or Redding most likely.

    Thanks mate. I've seen that both Midway UK and Reloading solutions stock pretty much everything I will need, but I thought I'd see if there were any gathering dust first!
    Point noted about the brass issues - I'll look into that. Cheers!
