A very nice chambering that is alive and well. For the reloader it offers the hint of extra horsepower over the 7mm-98 (My personal prefered deer round) that lets you drive 7mm bullets in the 160 gr. range with some wicked bc to near 7mm Rem Mag velocities in a very efficient case with very little shoulder pounding (not that the 7mm RM is a brusier anyway).

The 280 is a great round! Of the 270, 280, and 06 I would chose it every time.
The neck was pushed out about .050 so it would not chamber in a 270.
If you want the best of the both the 270 and the 06 get a 280!

i have always had a liking for the 30-06, and have owned something in 30-06 for over 35 years now, but also any cartridge based off the 30-06 as well. several years ago, i found a fondness for 7mm calibered cartridges and when i located my Ruger M77V in 280 Remington last year, i found a new cartridge to love! it's based off the 30-06 and it's a 7mm. true love for me!

I really like my .280 but I don't know a lot about it. I know that it is a bolt action. I have been told that it is a Mauser action but not sure. Is that a good or bad thing?

Mauser is a brand of rifle that was made prior to WWII and many rifles makers used variations of the Mauser actions and some still do currently. beings the 280 Remington wasn't introduced until 1957, highly doubt a WWII Mauser rifle would be chambered in it, unless it was rebarreled many years later.

there were lots's of rifles that copied the Mauser design. the Springfield 1903 was so close they even were sued by Mauser! and Mauser won the lawsuit.

the pre-1964 Winchester M70 were very close in design to the Mauser action.

the older Ruger M77's were very close to the Mauser action.

and Mauser licensed their designs to many others and still currently makes sporting rifles using pretty much the original design.
